DEI: A State Legislation Tracker

“Diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI) is the contemporary application of the racist worldview known as critical race theory. DEI offices and employees advocate and apply racial preferences in public life, resulting in discriminatory activities that often violate state and federal civil rights laws. State policymakers are considering proposals that prohibit DEI’s racist activities in public postsecondary institutions in their states.
