Equal Justice Society: We will not be deterred by a Supreme Court majority running roughshod over our civil and human rights
June 29, 2023 – The Equal Justice Society shares its profound anger and disappointment in the ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court today in SFFA v. UNC and SFFA v. Harvard. These decisions are a severe blow to the equal opportunity and fairness that EJS fights for and that everyone in this country deserves. Our nation’s future depends on racial equity and diversity in higher education to achieve a thriving, multiracial democracy. We must all continue to work together to achieve that goal. EJS is more committed than ever to countering white supremacy in higher education and in all our institutions.
