The purpose of this section is to protect and advance the scholarly production and innovative teaching of critical theory despite mounting attacks against the critical schools of legal knowledge. Specifically, the interrelated goals of the section are to: (1) expand community building, networks, and mutual aid among law faculty members who participate in the production, expression, dissemination, and application of critical knowledge; while combatting censorship, intimidation, or retaliation that target critical voices, and (2) to support and expand teaching, learning, research, scholarship, pedagogy, advocacy, and activism grounded in critical knowledge, which includes making critical knowledge more practical, accessible, and actionable in efforts to strengthen democratic decision making, particularly in the academy and on campuses.
