HRC opposes effort to shut ATU office -SAM HOISINGTON

The Human Rights Campaign, which claims to be the largest LGBTQ rights organization in the world, has officially condemned efforts by state lawmakers to force a closure of the Arkansas Tech University Department of Diversity and Inclusion. The lawmakers are proposing an amendment to House Bill 1213 that, if passed, will require Arkansas Tech University to dismantle its Department of Diversity and Inclusion. A draft of the amendment received by The Courier clearly seeks to eliminate the Department, saying "Arkansas Tech University shall not budget, allocate, commit for expenditure or expend any funding for the Arkansas Tech Department of Diversity and Inclusion or its successor." http://www.couriernews.com/view/full_story/27379603/article-HRC-opposes-effort-to-shut-ATU-office
