Multinational telecommunications conglomerate Verizon has internal programs that train employees on anti-American sentiments and “anti-racism” agendas, according to a new report.
Following the death of George Floyd in late May 2020, Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg delivered a speech where he announced that the company would commit $10 million to “aid organizations dedicated to equality and social justice.”
Verizon launched a new “Race & Social Justice Action Toolkit” in June 2020, with “employee-generated resources to jumpstart your education” and “support partners who are on the frontlines of battling racial injustice.”
Verizon then presented a “Race & Social Justice” initiative last year for employee training, which “has created an extensive race reeducation program based on the core tenets of critical race theory, including ‘systemic racism,’ ‘white fragility,’ and ‘intersectionality,'” according to City Journal.
Journalist Christopher F. Rufo claims to have received internal Verizon documents from a whistleblower, which show corporate curriculum and speeches that spread a leftist agenda.
