CRT is an analytical approach that brings a specific set of tools to the inquiry to why things are the way they are.
It has an agenda to be clear:

- Second, to explain and expose.
- Thirdly to advocate for change and transformation in the lived realities of those impacted by the greater systems that we are a part of.
