Learn about Anti-DEI Legislation

APS, the American Association of Physics Teachers, and the National Society of Black Physicists partnered to organize informational webinars on anti-Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) legislation. One webinar focused on anti-DEI legislation in Florida and another focused on anti-DEI legislation efforts across the country. We encourage physicists concerned about this legislation to familiarize themselves with these webinars and the accompanying resources.
