Student organizations on college and university campuses should be able to select leaders who share the organizations’ goals. Would it make sense to force College Democrats to allow a Republican to lead the organization? Must the Libertarians admit Democratic Socialists to leadership positions? Of course not. Yet religious groups – including Jewish, Muslim, and Catholic groups – are being kicked off campuses for requiring that leaders uphold the teachings of the group.
This is not only a matter of fundamental freedoms. It’s also a matter of common sense.
The Equal Campus Access Act of 2019 protects ALL students by withholding certain federal funding from public universities that discriminate against religious student groups. Tell your senators and representatives to support H.R. 3243/S.1168, the Equal Campus Access Act!
