FEMA Now Mandating Three-Hour Diversity Training For Employees

While 1,000 people are missing in Hawaii after a wildfire ravaged Maui, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is mandating a three-hour diversity training for employees, arguing that White supremacy is “ingrained in nearly every system and institution in the U.S.”

The Free Beacon reviews emails indicating that FEMA’s employees were required to complete the training and that the agency’s “resilience” division was advised to complete one of three three-hour diversity training modules between Aug.1, 2023, and Sept. 28, 2023.

The training, which is comprised of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), claims that the U.S. is “rooted in extreme, extraordinary violence” whilst insisting “that systemic racism and oppression exist.”

FEMA’s website states that Victoria Salinas, a Biden administration appointee, oversees the “resilience” division.

The division works to “help communities across the United States equitably adapt, survive, recover and thrive in the face of natural disasters,” according to FEMA’s website.

In a July 2023 email obtained by the Free Beacon, FEMA Leaders indicated that the training is “part of our ongoing commitment to instill Equity as a Foundation of Emergency Management.”

Chauncia Willis, who advocates for DEI, told the outlet that she delivered live training to FEMA employees “months ago.” Willis would record her lectures, which FEMA would then show to its employees.

“White supremacy is an ideology, a pattern of values and beliefs that are ingrained in nearly every system and institution in the U.S.,” the presentation says in a section titled, “Why Start With White Supremacy and Race?” In another section, titled, “The Uncomfortable Truth,” the presentation says the U.S. was created and “rooted in extreme, extraordinary violence.”

“The established economic, justice, and social systems all require subjugation of certain groups,” Willis’ presentation continues.

In a separate course, “Historical Perspectives of Emergency Management,” Willis argued that White supremacists often shield their views to rub off as “nice people” in society.

“There’s this false narrative that white supremacists are outspoken extremists, they’re domestic terrorists, they’re the people that are protesting the removal of confederate monuments,” Willis said during the presentation.

“But these are examples of extreme white supremacy. By personifying white supremacists as these types of extremists, then we’re gonna overlook the white supremacists lurking in the workplace, lurking in the schools, within the community, and remember nice people can be white supremacists,” Willis added.
