Another Victory! DEI Hire Poway Unified Superintendent Placed on Administrative Leave

The ousting of Superintendent Phelps, a DEI appointee who actively promoted anti-racism, equity and restorative justice in the PUSD, is a solid win for PUSD students, local parents and community members who organized effectively to exert consistent pressure on the leadership. It is also a cause to celebrate for CFER because our proposal to win the culture war through local organizing has been proven as a winning strategy.

A City Council Kills A DEI Proposal and Another Cuts DEI Spending! The Culture War at A Crossroads

On January 17, 2024, the Encinitas City Council voted unanimously to not hire a diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) coordinator and not convene a DEI advisory group. Even though four of the five Encinitas council members are registered Democrats, the city council has responded to concerned citizens and reason in shooting down the state-initiated DEI proposal. A parallel development is happening in another San Diego North County city – Carlsbad – where the city council will eliminate 12 city positions, including the city’s chief innovation officer and senior program manager for DEI in the next fiscal year.


Defend merit and advance equality.
