Jan 19, 2021“The Trump Administration is forcing colleges to choose between protecting students and losing federal funding, or allowing discrimination against students in order to keep federal financial assistance," said Richard B. Katskee, AU legal director. "That is unfair, unlawful, and just plain wrong. Discrimination has no place in our public colleges and universities."
Jan 07, 2021“Discrimination should never be funded or supported by our government, but that’s exactly what this rule does. Families, senior citizens and children could lose protections against discrimination and suddenly be turned away from taxpayer-funded programs they need," said AU CEO Rachel Laser.
Jan 06, 2021“Make no mistake: These rioters threaten every freedom we claim, including religious freedom. The noose hung on the West Lawn of our Capitol and the signs calling on Jesus only re-emphasize the unholy alliance of this president with White Christian nationalists."
Jan 05, 2021“Americans United is in solidarity with every religious institution attacked and exploited by white Christian nationalists in the service of white supremacy. Religious freedom means safe and secure worship for everyone – without discrimination," said AU CEO Rachel Laser.
Dec 18, 2020“We must unite against all actions that seek to privilege white Christians above all others. We will never stop fighting for an America that fulfills its promise of freedom and equality for all of us, no matter what our religious beliefs, what we look like, who we love, or who we are," said Rachel Laser, AU CEO and President.
