Latest Attack On Freedom

Hi Jerome,

I hope this email finds you well!

I wanted to reach out and see if you noticed the headlines regarding the teacher who was fired in the latest example of political correctness run amuck. Just this week, we filed a complaint on behalf of Peter Vlaming, a high school teacher in Virginia who was fired for exercising his right to free speech.

But Peter Vlaming wasn’t fired because he said something objectionable. He was fired because of something he didn’t say. You can read the full story here.

You’ve probably seen this kind of story in the news lately. Too often, they involve professors on university campuses being demoted or disciplined for refusing to express messages they disagree with. But Peter Vlaming is a high school teacher. And he was fired for declining to use certain words!

This issue only seems to be getting worse. We need to respect every individual’s free speech.

Jerome, I was curious to hear what you think we should do? Please reply back and let me know your thoughts. I would love to hear them.

Best,

Maureen
