In this Sip Session we are joined by Retired Superior Court Judge Angela C. Robinson, who will share why she loves to teach Critical Race Theory, and how it can provide us with tools to end racism and racial disparities.

Principles of CRT teach us that race is a story we tell ourselves and each other. Therefore, to undo the harms of racism, we must tell new stories. Using tools from CRT, we are going to collectively write a new racial narrative, one that addresses the faults in our existing ones; and one that accounts for where we are and where we want to be.
