Lamorinda community works to defend DEIB work
By Sharon K. Sobotta
As pushback against affirmative diversity, equity and inclusion practices show up in Lamorinda along with fears about critical race theory being a part of the academy, allies, educators, students and parents call on the community to move forward not backward.
