Joint Statement Opposing Executive Order to Censor Race & Gender Equity Training

AFREF joined several of our civil rights and other partners in opposing the Executive Order on Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping issued on September 22, 2020. The Executive Order attempts to erase the very concept of racism and sexism as being real, historical and present-day phenomena and undermines important and necessary employer initiatives aimed at understanding and dismantling racist, sexist, and discriminatory structures. The American people will suffer real harm and unjust consequences when those charged with serving the public do not learn the facts necessary to do their jobs effectively and equitably.
