The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fairfax, Emmaus United Church of Christ, SURJ NoVA (Showing Up for Racial Justice Northern Virginia) are hosting a teach-in to counter the baseless claims of anti-CRT politics and reinforce the importance of teaching inclusive history. The event is being held on Sat., Jan. 15, to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday and to coincide with Virginia Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin’s first day in office – a day he has vowed to “ban critical race theory (CRT)” in the Commonwealth. Since CRT is not taught in Virginia schools, the event organizers aim to counter disinformation about CRT and lift up how quality education needs to include “teaching truth.”
