Oppose Kenneth Marcus’s Nomination for Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights in the Department of Education

On October 30, Trump nominated Kenneth Marcus to be Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights in the Department of Education.

Marcus has a long record of filing spurious discrimination claims with the department in an effort to suppress Palestine activism on campus, and supports anti-BDS legislation.

Marcus is yet another Trump nominee who would undermine the very protections his office is supposed to uphold.

Contact your senators and tell them to oppose Marcus’s nomination.

Kenneth Marcus, Trump’s nominee for Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights at the Department of Education, is a sworn opponent of Palestinian rights. How? He sues universities for allowing pro-Palestine activism on campus, calls for defunding universities whose Middle East Studies programs he believes are “anti-Israel,” and tries to get student activists disciplined for participating in campus actions.
