“We are starting equalprotect.org, the Equal Protection Project, because we’re seeing very troubling patterns in society…. We are seeing that unfortunately, under the concept of equity, that there is outright discrimination on the basis of race.”
The Equal Protection Project (EqualProtect.org) is the newest project of the Legal Insurrection Foundation. I was honored to be able to announce the launch of EPP on Tucker Carlson Tonight:

TUCKER: Well under the term equity, Joe Biden has made racial discrimination, open racial discrimination, mandatory at all levels of the federal government. That’s illegal. It’s completely immoral. Most Americans oppose it, hate it, but very few lawyers have organized to stop it. Bill Jacobson is one who might actually do that. He’s president of the of Legal Insurrection. He’s announcing tonight an initiative called the Equal Protection Project devoted to fair treatment of all Americans under the law without regard to race. The group scouting principle is there is no good racism. It’s equalprotect.org, and we are honored to Bill Jacobson join us tonight to explain what it is. Bill Jacobson, thanks so much for coming on. Lay this out for us, if you would.
WAJ: Sure, Tucker. Thanks for having me on. So we are starting equalprotect.org, the Equal Protection Project, because we’re seeing very troubling patterns in society.
Our highest ideal as a society is enshrined in the Constitution, the 14th Amendment, and federal, state and local law, which is you do not discriminate on the basis of race or ethnicity. And we are seeing that unfortunately, under the concept of equity, that there is outright discrimination on the basis of race.
A perfect example is in Providence, Rhode Island, where I’m located right now. the Providence School District, the largest in Rhode Island, has founded a program for teacher loan forgiveness, new teacher loan forgiveness, funded by the Rhode Island Foundation, the largest charity in Rhode Island. There’s one catch to it. You cannot apply unless you are non-white. So they have are openly discriminating against new white teachers with this program. And nobody seems to blink an eye at it.
We have filed a federal complaint about it. We are pursuing it, but nobody is challenging this. The Governor is no place to be found. The Attorney General is no place to be found. This is a government program to discriminate and unfortunately that’s what has happened to the equity agenda. And we’re getting reports from around the country of these sort of problems.
So we are organizing to investigate these things, to expose them and if necessary, to litigate them. And one of the things we’re doing, and you can sign up at our website if you’re a lawyer who wants to help in this effort, at equalprotect.org, a lawyers network speakers Because this has to be a national effort. As you mentioned, the Biden administration’s behind it also. So that’s what we’re doing and we ask people to come and visit and join us.
TUCKER: Yeah, you can’t just let them construct a new Jim Crow and ignore it. And thank you for soliciting the help of other lawyers. This needs an organized framework and I think you’re providing it and we appreciate it. Bill Jacobson. Thank you.
WAJ: Great. Thank you.DONATE
