WASHINGTON, DC – Government watchdog Accountable.US released a new analysis today identifying eight prominent groups that are part of the anti-Critical Race Theory astroturf ‘movement’ that also have direct ties to anti-voting and civil rights movements. The report comes as Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick vowed this week to ban critical race theory in public universities.

When you have several far-right groups involved with both efforts to deny people of color the freedom to vote and deny children an accurate and inclusive education, it’s time they admit what they’re really concerned about: people of color having their voices heard. These right-wing billionaire-backed efforts are nothing more than a cynical, calculated strategy to activate the most racist elements of the conservative base and marginalize communities of color.”

Kyle Herrig, president of Accountable.US
