Providence Public Schools Accused of Discriminating against White Teachers in Radical Equity Agenda

Joshua Q. Nelson, Fox News, January 18, 2023

The Providence Public School Department [PPSD] planned an event that is accused of violating state and federal anti-discrimination laws, according to a letter Fox News Digital has obtained.

A non-profit called Legal Insurrection Foundation (LIF) on Tuesday sent a letter to the Nelson Event Center, located in Cranston, Rhode Island, to put them on notice for hosting a “racially discriminatory” event that was planned by the PPSD.


Per the letter, the event called “PPSD Educators of Color” was organized and sponsored by the Providence Public School District. The event is scheduled to take place on January 19th and is intended to “bring Educators of Color together.


One of the posters promoting the event states it is for “PPSD Educators of Color.” The registration form for the event says “[W]e are inviting Educators of Color (in whatever capacity) in PPSD to attend.”

Underneath that, the registration form contains a checklist of only non-white categories for attendees.

Legal Insurrection claimed that NEC’s hosting of the event violates Rhode Island and federal law due to the fact that it is “unlawful for a place of public accommodation” to discriminate on the basis of race and ethnicity.

“{snip} Events that discriminate against whites are just as unlawful as events that discriminate against non-whites. Because the Event was promoted as a segregated event, the discriminatory taint cannot be wiped away,” the letter states.
