New Report Reveals Bush Administration’s Hostility Toward Civil Rights

Media 04.21,03

On Thursday, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund (LCCREF) will release a new report, “The Bush Administration Takes Aim: Civil Rights Under Attack,” which documents the anti-civil rights agenda through regulation, litigation, and budgetary decisions that the Bush Administration has pursued. This quiet agenda is being followed while the administration has a high profile agenda of combating terrorism and prosecuting the war in Iraq. The result is a disturbing pattern of hostility toward the rights of minorities, women, immigrants, workers, and individuals with disabilities, which has systematically undermined decades of civil rights progress.
