End Racism in Higher Education: #EqualRight2Learn

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!


I am a medical doctor that grew up in inner city Chicago. My 17 yr journey to become a physician came to an abrupt end when I found racial threats in my performance evaluations.  I reported my concerns to the Office of Civil Rights at the Department of Education as well as to the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). To date, neither agency has investigated this matter.  When I reported my concerns to my state licensing board, they placed an indefinite administrative hold on my license – effectively preventing me from continuing my medical education. Please help to put an end to this injustice by signing this petition. We are asking that (1) the Dept. of Education and the ACGME conduct an investigation into this matter (2) my state medical board, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, release their administrative hold on my license so that I can continue my medical education. All students should have a right to a fair education.
