Owens Introduces the Say No to Indoctrination Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) introduced the Say No to Indoctrination Act, which prevents the use of federal funds to advance discriminatory concepts informed by Critical Race Theory.

“From the Tulsa Race Massacre to Jim Crow and Juneteenth, young Americans deserve to learn about all significant events in our country’s history,” said Owens. “Critical Race Theory, however, teaches students that America is irredeemably racist and intrinsic characteristics like race, color, and national origin define you. As we strive to address injustice, I’m proud to introduce the ‘Say No to Indoctrination Act’ to keep taxpayer dollars from funding discriminatory practices and divisive worldviews.”
