USF employee faces termination after protest arrest

by The 100 Companies

University of South Florida employee Chrisley Carpio was one of four people arrested earlier this month after protesting Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Legislature’s plan to prohibit universities from spending on diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives and ban courses covering critical race theory and gender studies.

She says the school sent her a letter of intent to fire her. Carpio has worked at USF since 2016, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

The protesters were demanding USF President Rhea Law not comply with the Governor’s plan. A state union says Carpio should be protected until the school completes an investigation.
