Vermonters for Vermont Initiative (V4V) announced today that they will host a public Townhall Informational on public schools teaching Equity, also known as Critical Race Theory (CRT), in the the classroom. It will be held at the Whetstone Church in Brattleboro. V4V was established in December 2018 to educate all Vermonters on public policies coming from Montpelier and local government.

On Friday, July 30, 2021 at 6:30 p.m., four speakers will take to the stage at The Whetstone Church in Brattleboro for a two-hour discussion on Critical Race Theory/Equity. All our speakers have experience with public schools and with the introduction of race based education in our schools. CRT is also being introduced in many of our public institutions and businesses. Proponents claims that it does not harm children, that CRT teaches equity and the true history of our nation. While opponents argue that CRT is destroying our children and making them think as racists, and is pitting races and ethnic groups against each other.

Critical Race Theory teaches people that they are either oppressors or oppressed/victims! It has been around since the 1970s, being taught in many colleges across the nation, and now it is coming to students of all ages. CRT is a product of the writings of the communist manifesto works of Karl Marx.

Our speakers for the evening are:

  • Welcome & Comments by Gregory Thayer, of “Vermonters for Vermont” Initiative
  • Mark Coester, Concerned Citizen
  • Aaron Kindsvatter, PhD, UVM Professor
  • John Klar,  VT Liberty Network
  • A fourth speaker invited

Speakers are allowed 15 minute speeches, and after the last speaker all of them will come to the front and answer questions from the audience. Our Townhall will conclude at 8:30pm.
