Alabama Governor Signs Bill To Ban Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion Programs In The State

Share

The Alabama legislation would prevent grades K-12, universities, and state agencies from sponsoring DEI programs. The bill defines this as training, programs, classes, and events where attendance is based on specific factors. This includes race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

Furthermore, the legislation states that public schools, universities, and state agencies can’t order students or staff outside contractors to attend any training that discusses “divisive concepts.”

One banned concept is requiring individuals to “accept, acknowledge, affirm or assent to a sense of guilt, complicity, or a need to apologize on the basis of his other race, color, religion, sex, ethnicity, or national origin.” 

Additionally, the bill also slams concepts that “fault, blame, or (assert) bias” to people “based on race, religion, gender or national origin.”
