Congresswoman Foushee’s Statement on SCOTUS Decision to Overturn Affirmative Action in University Admissions

Jun 29, 2023

DURHAM, NC (June 29, 2023) – Today, Congresswoman Valerie Foushee (NC-04), released the following statement after the United States Supreme Court’s decision to bar affirmative action in Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. President and Fellows of Harvard College.
“Today’s ruling is devastating and will dismantle the race-conscious admissions efforts to ensure that higher education is accessible to all students – especially Black students and students of color who are historically disadvantaged,” said Congresswoman Valerie Foushee (NC-04). “Ending affirmative action in our colleges and universities is not only a step backwards in establishing a more equitable society, but the repercussions of this decision will be felt for generations. Diversity makes our nation stronger, and all students deserve equal opportunity to a quality education, regardless of their income or their racial and ethnic background.”
