Featured News U.S. Commission for Civil Rights Holds Hearing on School to Prison Pipeline
On December 8, 2017, Daniel J. Losen, director of the CRP’s Center for Civil Rights Remedies, testified in Washington, DC, at a public briefing of the U.S. Commission for Civil Rights (USCCR).

Featured News Are There Workable Alternatives to Affirmative Action?
Since the courts -- as recently as the 2016 Fisher v.

Featured News Statement by Concerned Members of the White House Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics
In this time of acute stress for Hispanic students and their families, the Commission, first established by President George H.W. Bush, stands ready to offer its expertise to the current administration. After 27 years of service it is about to cease to exist. Latino youth, now representing one-fourth of all U.S. students, and by 2050 one third, are the future of America. Our fate as a nation rests in large part on the fate of these young people. We do know how to improve the future for them, and thus for the country as a whole. The Commission has offered many research-based recommendations.
