A message from MRW's President, Pauline Bruno
One important way to fight against leftist attacks on our culture and traditions is to "be there and be heard." On Monday, April 12, Moore Republican Women along with representatives from the Republican Men's Club and Moore County GOP, went to the Moore County School Board meeting to protest the inclusion of Critical Race Theory in the school curriculum this fall.
Here's what I said to the school board on April 12:
Good evening. My name is Pauline Bruno. Thank you for allowing me this time.
On behalf of the citizens, parents and grandparents of Moore County, we have just delivered 1,000 signed letters to you letting you know how much we despise this Critical Race Theory and refuse to allow it in our schools.
You will not indoctrinate our children! You will not divide our babies! You will not nullify the memory and work of our beloved Martin Luther King.
Title 4 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination in public schools because of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Additionally, the Equal Education Opportunities Act of 1974 prohibits deliberate segregation on the basis of race, color and national origin. School districts – meaning you – are required to vanquish barriers to equal participation.
To quote Martin Luther King: “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
Do not think for one second that the citizens you represent will let this matter ride. If it becomes necessary to file a lawsuit to stop this indoctrination, we will join with other state-wide groups in fighting this hateful ideology in the courts. We will not allow the innocence of our children to be warped by such hate and nonsense.
