A Rhode Island mom filed a lawsuit Wednesday after she was blocked from attending "secret" meetings that were focused on antiracist ideology
and should have been open to the public, allegations in a complaint
"I learned that my school had appointed a subcommittee to change the
curriculum in the school under an antiracist or equity lens — which is
really just a radical ideology," Nicole Solas, a senior fellow with
Independent Women's Forum, told Fox News Digital.
Upon discovering the meetings, Solas requested to join, but was told
that "the board meetings aren't open to the public." The lawsuit was
filed by the Goldwater Institute and alleged that blocking Solas from
attending "public body" meetings violated Rhode Island's Open Meetings
The South Kingston BIPOC Advisory Committee was formed in 2020 and is
"an entity that receives public funds, is comprised in part of public
officials and has regular and recurring meetings to advise the School
Committee on ‘equity in education,'" the lawsuit said.
"The goal is to get everybody to look at every decision, every action,
with a lens of anti-racism and anti-discrimination," the chairperson,
Robin Wildman, said in 2021 about the committee.
