According to the NEA, largest union in the country, the NEA will be developing a campaign targeting organizations that oppose Critical Race Theory or “Anti-Racist” work. Don’t forget Loudoun that LEA is governed by the NEA. Terry McAuliffe, VA Gubernatorial just received at least $100,000 from the NEA. Neither the NEA or LEA give a hoot about your kids. Remember this on election day.
NEA will research the organizations attacking educators doing anti-racist work and/or use the research already done and put together a list of resources and recommendations for state affiliates, locals, and individual educators to utilize when they are attacked. The research, resources, and recommendations will be shared with members through NEA’s social media, an article in NEA Today, and a recorded virtual presentation/webinar.
The attacks on anti-racist teachers are increasing, coordinated by well-funded organizations such as the Heritage Foundation. We need to be better prepared to respond to these attacks so that our members can continue this important work.
