Virginia students are protesting the attorney general’s new policy suggesting an end to universities’ anti-discrimination policies, the Washington Post reported.

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II issued a letter to public Virginia universities requesting they back track on their discrimination policies in regards to sexual orientation, the article stated.

Students from various campuses, some of which are on spring break, planned to protest the attorney general’s request and many student organizations have received emails from riled students.

The Family Foundation, on the other hand, supported the attorney general’s decision and is rallying its conservative Christian supporters behind Cuccinelli, according to the article.

The attorney general issued the letter, in part, because the universities applied the anti-discrimination language in their policies without an order from the General Assembly.
