Tell Betsy DeVos to remove Candice Jackson from the Office for Civil Rights.
April 27, 2017
The current acting head of the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights is Candice Jackson, an outspoken anti-feminist who has claimed that she has been the subject of race-based discrimination for being white. Jackson is an unacceptable choice to lead a department that is instrumental in protecting students from discrimination on the basis of gender, race, disability, and age in any capacity. And during the presidential campaign in 2016, despite previous support for some survivors of assault, she wrote on Facebook that the women accusing Donald Trump of sexual assault were “fake victims”... demonstrating she only cares about their experiences when it is politically convenient.
Tell Betsy DeVos that Candice Jackson is an unacceptable choice for acting head of the Office for Civil Rights, and that she needs to nominate a candidate who will fiercely advocate for the rights of all students.
