The FBI training page defining interseismicity is largely unclear, but the Oxford English Dictionary defines “individuation” as “the interconnected nature of social classifications, such as race, class, and gender, as they relate to a given individual or group.” which is regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or harm.”

Training materials outline a person’s identity along many different lines, including “race/ethnicity,” “gender,” “sexual orientation,” “ability,” “religion,” “age,” “education,” and “social class.” The training material encourages employees to identify the part of their identity that they are least and least aware of, the part that is stressed by their families, and the part that is “my colleagues seems invisible to the most.”

The training also encourages employees to “recognize and value each other’s unique identities and their intersections”.

The training material seems particularly noteworthy in light of criticism of Garland’s latest directive to the FBI. Garland directed the FBI and US attorneys’ offices to meet with law enforcement at all levels to investigate what the DOJ called a “disturbing trend” of “threats of violence” at school board meetings. .

The announcement comes days after the National School Board Association wrote a letter President Biden asked his administration to treat parental protests at school board meetings as potential acts of “domestic terrorism.” The association also noted “threats” to concerns about CRT, concerns which the association dismissed as “propaganda”.

The parents responded to Garland’s move with outrage.

“I look like a domestic terrorist?” Asked Asra Nomani, vice president of investigation and strategy at Parents Defending Education. “You’re sorry parents!” Nomani’s group has researched how school boards across the country are implementing so-called “awakening” ideas like CRT into their curriculum.

Former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos condemned the DOJ memo as “a shameless attempt to silence parents and limit their control over their children’s education.”

The FBI did not respond to Granthshala News’ request for comment on intersectionality training.
