News Massachusetts human services orgs urge the withdrawal of Executive Order 13950, Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping

The Council and its fellow human services  trade organizations have urged the Trump administration to withdraw  Executive Order 13950, Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping.

Last last week, the Council, along with the  Association for Behavioral Healthcare, Association of Developmental Disabilities Providers, the Children’s League of Massachusetts
and the Massachusetts Association of 766 Approved Private Schools (maaps) co-authored a letter nothing that the community-based human services sector in Massachusetts includes many federal subcontractors covered under this executive order.

As written, the Council and the other organizations believe the Executive Order creates confusion and uncertainty, leads to non-meritorious investigations, and hinders the ability of employers to implement critical programs to promote diversity and combat discrimination in the workplace.

The Council and its co-signers urge the Trump administration to withdraw its Executive Order and work with the human services and nonprofit communities on an approach that supports appropriate workplace training programs.
