Thanks to the 500+ people who signed the Open Letter coordinated and written By Andrew Brooks (with some inout form me). The letter calls out the Australian Senate’s rejection of critical race theory. It was published in Overland Magazine.
The signatories of this letter oppose the attacks on ‘critical race theory’. At a time of mounting white supremacism across the Global North, these attacks are a stark reminder that we need more critical thinking about race and we resolve to continue this work across a range of diverse fields and disciplines. We call on institutions of research and education in Australia to stand with students, scholars, and educators whose work is coming under attack and to support their vital work.
Read the full letter here and the accompanying article by Andrew Brooks which sets the attacks on Critical Race Theory in political context.
