(THE FEDERALIST) – The University of Pittsburgh, a Pennsylvania institution heavily backed by taxpayer dollars and with an endowment of $4.17 billion, is hosting a critical race theory (CRT) conference open to the public in late July, while concealing its financial contributions thanks to an uncommon state open records law.
“This year’s forum sessions and workshops will engage and equip participants with the knowledge, skills and resources to identify sources of systemic oppression, consider strategies for dismantling that oppression, and identify actions critical in fostering more equitable and just communities in which to live, work and learn,” the school states on its website.
The event, which is called the “Diversity Forum” and has the subtitle “Dismantling Oppressive Systems: Building Just Communities,” will run from July 26 to 29. It will occur over Zoom and is being hosted by the Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
