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 Senators on the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and tell them to oppose Marcus’s nomination.
