DEI Event: What is Critical Race Theory and Why is Holding Critical Awareness Important 
Date: Thursday, March 17, 2022 (5:30-6:30 pm) This session will be recorded and shared. 


Description: Confused by the current conversations, laws, and teachings on Critical Race Theory (CRT)? You are not alone. The recent elevation of CRT into public discourse has caused an uproar full of misinformation and unknowns that make it difficult to discern what CRT is and what it isn’t. In this presentation, social justice scholar Paul David Terry explores the origins of CRT while highlighting life-long learning tools like critical awareness to address racial bias within ourselves and our communities. He will also walk through the importance of self-reflection and joy as we advance our understanding of multicultural and racial justice education.


Presenter: Paul David Terry (he/they) is the assistant director of affinity programs at UC Davis and alumni diversity representative for the University of California Office of the President. He served as chair for the Chancellor's Committee on LGBTQIA+ Communities and vice-chair of the Vice Chancellor's LGBTQ+ Health Advisory Council, the first group to add SO/GI into an electronic health record in the country. A doctoral student in the University of San Francisco International and Multicultural Education program and IME fellow, his research focus is on long-term cultural competency adoption using human rights praxis in large-scale organizations and integrating racial justice education in healthcare.
