Meeting Details

Critical Race Theory, it’s Use, Misuse and Potential Application to Progressive Politics

In this brief talk, Marvin Lynn, a leading scholar in the area of Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Education, will provide a brief overview of CRT, address the way it is currently being misused by the Conservative Right, and provide recommendations for how progressives might combat a broad disinformation campaign while using CRT as a lens to further democratize their own processes and practices.

He is a nationally recognized expert on race and the education of BIPOC learners. He has published dozens of research articles, book chapters, opinion pieces, and an edited book on these topics. He is also a servant leader who serves on several state and national boards including the Carnegie Project for the Education Doctorate, the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Providence Hospitals’ Oregon Community Ministry Board, the Oregon Educator Advancement Council, the Oregon Educator Equity Advisory Group, and Immediate Past President of the Oregon Association of Colleges for Teacher Education. He currently serves on the Tigard-Tualatin School Board.

What to expect for online credentialing for virtual meetings

When you log in to the Zoom meeting, you will be held in a Zoom “waiting room” until a credentialing volunteer admits you to the meeting. Once in the room, if we are able to tell that you are a PCP by name or by visually recognizing you on video, we will consider you credentialed and no further action will be required. If we cannot easily recognize you by face or name and match you with our PCP list, we will interact with you to verify your identity before you are considered credentialed to vote in the meeting. Guests will also be verified in this way but will be labeled with “ZZZ-” in front of their names to help us easily tell which attendees may speak and vote.




Always check your mute status before speaking; the host may have muted you if you forget to.
