Vermonters for Vermont Initiative (V4V) announced today that they will host a public Townhall Informational on public school’s teaching of Equity, also known as; Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the the classroom. V4V is a organization started in December 2018 to educate all Vermonters on public policies coming from Montpelier and local governments.
On Wednesday, July 14, 2021 at 6:30pm five speakers will take to the stage at The Canadian Club in Barre, VT. for a two hours discussion on Critical Race Theory/Equity teachings in our schools. All of the speakers have experience with the public schools and with the introduction of CRT to our children. 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 racist, and pitting races and ethnic groups against each other.
Critical Race Theory teaches people that they are either oppressors or oppressed/victims. It’s 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:

The event will be facilitated by Gregory Thayer, “Vermonters for Vermont” Initiative.
