Dozens of parents attended a school board meeting in Loudoun County, Virginia on Tuesday evening in protest of the board’s politically motivated initiatives. Speakers spoke out against “anti-racist” curriculum being taught in schools, which “CRT” has become an umbrella term for. They also protested a resolution that would allow transgender athletes to participate in sports based on their gender identity and require teachers to use students’ preferred pronouns.
Over 200 people signed up for the public comment portion of the event.
After several speakers, the board voted to end the public comment portion of the meeting. This was met with boos from the crowd. After that, the police declared an unlawful assembly.
At least two arrests were made. The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office said one person was charged with trespassing while the other was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
