Brett Kling signed Defend Diversity at UT-Knoxville: Veto SB1912 2016-04-27 16:12:09 -0500The simple fact that state government is considering taking money away from this office is the same exact reason why it is needed! Since the legislature wants to get rid of it, they are in fact in need of diversity training and are bigoted.
The Legislature passed SB1912/HB2248 that removes funding from the Office for Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Sign this petition that we will deliver to Governor Haslam asking him to veto the bill.2,097 signatures
Governor Haslam, we call on you to veto SB1912/HB2248 and protect the University of Tennessee-Knoxville's Office for Diversity and Inclusion. The office plays a vital role in making the university competitive for the best students, faculty, and staff and it makes campus life welcoming for all. Thank you for considering our views.
