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.

    The office of diversity was directly responsible for the quality of discourse in my graduate class. Defunding what is, in all honesty, a small budget already, just points to the ever increasing death rattle of the conservative right struggling to actuate their personal vision on the mass majority.
