Stop DEI in State Agencies and Public Higher Education

In an act of decisive leadership, Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt signed an executive order last week to curb DEI initiatives in state agencies and institutions of higher education.

The executive order requires state agencies and public higher education to conduct a “review of DEI positions, departments, activities, procedures, and programs,” all with the goal of eliminating DEI programs and dismissing DEI personnel. It also prohibits state-funded programs from mandating any person to disclose their pronouns.

We need leadership like this in Idaho. Send a message asking Gov. Brad Little to issue a similar executive order ensuring that our tax dollars and public institutions aren’t used as social engineering firms for the DEI agenda.
