About this event
Is Critical Race Theory (CRT) a way of understanding how American racism has shaped public policy, or a divisive discourse that pits people of color against white people, as some conservatives are espousing? Professor Deborah Archer, President of the ACLU National Board, will discuss these controversies and what critical race theory actually is. Plus: an appearance by Regina Tillman, Chair of the NYS League’s Diversity Equality and Inclusion Task Force.
Professor Deborah N. Archer is an American civil rights lawyer and law professor. She is the Jacob K. Javits Professor at New York University and professor of clinical law at New York University School of Law. She is also the President of the American Civil Liberties Union National Board.
Regina Tillman, Chair of the NY State League’s Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion Task Force will discuss the program, which identifies groups that are socially and politically excluded from political and social interests, and how it is offering the League insight into bias and discrimination.
