The Girl Scouts of the USA has announced a new direction that will see the organization push radical Marxist training programs for children.
The Girl Scouts is set to offer a four-part Marxism-based “racial equity” training series to volunteers and parents.
Part of the training will focus on “internalized racism” and “white supremacy culture.”
The 111-year-old organization was originally created to serve America’s young women.
However, the Girl Scouts now appears to have adopted far-left Critical Race Theory (CRT).
CRT is the divisive Marxism-rooted ideology that has taken root in America’s schools and corporations.
The four-part series is set to begin on December 13.
It will start with a virtual lesson titled “Foundations in Racial Equity.”
Not to be confused with “equality,” the Left’s “equity” agenda is based on Marxism.
Whereas “equality” teaches that everybody should be treated equally, no matter their race or sex, “equity” asserts that people should be treated differently depending on their skin color, “gender identity,” or mental state.
Under the “equity” ideology, for example, a transgender would be given advantages, such as securing a college scholarship or being offered a job, over a normal person.
A month later on January 16, the organization will launch the second part of its training program dubbed “Foundations in Internalized Racism.”
“Understanding and Decentering White Supremacy Culture” will take place on February 5.
The final lesson, titled “Navigating Change, Power and Equitable Decision Making,” takes place in late March.
“These D.E.I. Racial Equity workshops are designed for participants to engage in building a learning community, developing shared language and analysis around diversity, inclusion, and equity, deeply interrogating race,” a description of the sessions reads.
“Participants also interrogate structural racism and its historical construction while reflecting greatly on the way it manifests in our individual experiences, organizational dynamics, and systemic outcomes.”
The lessons will be held through GS Learn, a training platform for Girl Scout volunteers and family members of Girl Scouts.
The decision to offer “racial equity” lessons is mired in the dogmas of Critical Race Theory.
It comes after the Girl Scouts announced earlier this year that young members could earn an “LGBTQ+ Pride Month Fun Patch” if they attended a pride parade.
They were also tasked with memorizing a poem written by an author who identifies as LGBTQ, reading “about the Stonewall uprising in 1969 and its importance to the LGBTQ+ community,” or writing a poem of their own about the event.
The Girl Scouts have also published an “anti-racism guide” inspired by CRT.
The guide claims color-blindness “perpetuates racism” and that young children show a “bias towards whiteness.”
The guide instructs parents to talk to their children about racism, even implying that parents who refuse may be perpetuating unequal “justice, health, and education systems.”
The upcoming racial equity training sessions will be held in conjunction with the Equity Paradigm Group.
The North Carolina-based consulting firm characterizes itself as “a group of diversity practitioners, adult learning facilitators, researchers, organizers, change agents, and passionate social justice activists who are dedicated to evolving the way in which organizations approach their work.”
“We ground our work in the historical construction of race as a system of advantage to analyze ourselves, our actions, and to identify the underlying, implicit assumptions and biases that hold us back,” the Equity Paradigm Group states.
The consulting firm notes that their training sessions cover a variety of different topics.
Those subjects include: “Strategies for Applying an Intersectional Racial Equity Lens,” “Defining and Pursuing Liberation,” and “Naming & De-centering White Dominant Culture.”
The Boy Scouts of America have also pushed radical leftist worldviews on race.
The group announced in 2021 that aspiring Eagle Scouts would have to earn the “Citizenship in Society” merit badge.
The guide for merit badge counselors — the adults who walk scouts through the process of earning the badge — directs readers to resources that bash colorblindness, denigrate Christopher Columbus, and celebrate the LGBT movement.
