We are very excited about the upcoming panel discussion, What Are Your Children Learning taking place in Greenwich on May 21st at 4pm.
The discussion will get to the heart of the escalating controversy surrounding "diversity, equity, and inclusion" (DEI), critical race theory (CRT), how DEI and CRT are impacting what your children are learning, and so much more. You are not going to want to miss this important discussion!
We also have some terrific news to share — Dr. Jason Hill from Depaul University in Chicago — will be joining the panel.
Dr. Hill is a professor of philosophy and author of five books, including: What Do White Americans Owe Black People: Racial Justice in the Age of Post-Oppression, and bestseller, We Have Overcome: An Immigrant's Letter to the American People.
He came from Jamaica to the US when he was 20 years old and, rather than being faced with bigotry and systemic racism, he found incredible opportunity here — he got a college education, earned a doctorate in philosophy, and eventually became a tenured professor at a top university, an internationally-recognized scholar, and a bestselling author.
Hill talks about how, throughout his experiences, there wasn’t a systemically racist establishment trying to hold him down. But unfortunately, his academic colleagues did not seem keen on celebrating "the success of a black immigrant” and instead chose to disparage him for not embracing their ideology of victimization.
He calls it, "moral hysteria and hyperbole on the part of a far left that wants to paint racial minorities as helplessly under the yoke of white oppression.”
He joins Retired General Rod Bishop, who is concerned about efforts to teach and implement aspects of critical race theory (CRT) in U.S. military academies and throughout the U.S. He’s part of a lawsuit with Judicial Watch and his own organization, STARRS, which is taking a stand against racism and radicalism in the services.
“Our military is being undermined from within as the rising leadership at the Air Force Academy attacks America and force feeds cadets repackaged Marxist anti-American critical race theory,” said Judicial Watch founder Tom Fitton.
Also on the panel is Xi Van Fleet who is now a Senior Fellow with 1776 Action. She survived the horrors of Mao's Cultural Revolution and ultimately found freedom in America. She is concerned that America's destructive education bureaucracy is weaponizing our youth with the same Marxist tactics of division and indoctrination she experienced as a child.
And the powerful line up continues with Mary Holland, who is now on Team Kennedy 2024, Kevin Jenkins who heads up the FL Chapter of Children’s Health Defense, former CT State Rep. Kimberly Fiorello, Greenwich Patriots Founder Jackie Homan, and Creative Destruction Media Founder and former Air Force helicopter pilot L. Todd Wood.
We hope you can find the time to join us either in person, or via livestream on Sunday, May 21st at 4pm, for this important discussion!
