The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) has launched a new litigation center, The Equality Under the Law Project, to challenge unconstitutional race discrimination, quotas, and Critical Race Theory.
The project comes at a critical time when the federal government, states and cities, and even school districts are advancing policies and programs that discriminate on the basis of race – typically in the name of “equity”, according to a press release from WILL.
“In the last year, governments at all levels are instituting race discrimination in the name of progress and equity. But this radical ideology is incompatible with American constitutional law and undermines bedrock principles,” said Rick Esenberg, president and general counsel of the Milwaukee-based civil rights law firm. “The Equality Under the Law Project has already secured major legal victories, and will serve as a vanguard for the equal protection of all rights.”
As Wisconsin Spotlight recently reported, thousands of teachers nationwide, including more than 100 in Wisconsin, have signed a petition vowing to teach racist CRT dogma, even if their states ban such controversial concepts.
“Equality is under attack by government officials and woke businesses all across our nation,” WILL Deputy Counsel Dan Lennington said. “Every day, Americans face the new threats of unlawful discrimination at school, at work, and by their own government. Now is the time to stand up and defend equal rights for all.”
