Remove Anti-Civil Rights Figure from Government Position

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Ask for the resignation of anti-civil rights figure from government position in charge of civil rights.

Roger Severino, a leader of the Heritage Foundation, has been selected as the director  of the Office of Civil Rights. As director of the Heritage Foundation’s DeVos Center for Religion and Society, funded by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’ family, Severino has virulently spoken out against transgender rights, same-sex marriage, and funding for Planned Parenthood.

A man who has been known to have no regard for civil rights of the transgender community, women, and other minorities cannot reasonably be expected to protect them. His appointment directly endangers the civil rights of the American people and shows once again that Trump’s administration will hurt Americans, not protect them. Sign the petition and demand that Severino be asked to step down.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. President,

The appointment of Roger Severino as Director of the Office of Civil Rights is highly troubling. Throughout his career, he has done nothing but call for the removal of rights for both the LGBT community and women.

His appointment will cause great harm to Americans, directly threatening their civil rights. As president, you swore to protect all Americans. You must now do so by asking for the resignation of Severino. He has no place in controlling the rights of any American.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
