Meeting with Kimberly Hermann, General Counsel for Southeastern Legal Foundation

Learn about Title VI and Race, Color and National Origin Discrimination

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects teachers from discrimination based on race, color or national origin in programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title VI states that:

No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

Did you know that teachers have the right to speak their mind on social media, and that schools cannot punish you for content you post off-campus and outside of school hours that does not relate to school? If this has happened to you, we can help you fight back!
