Russlynn Ali, assistant secretary for the Office for Civil Rights, will deliver remarks at an Education Reform Town Hall hosted by U.S. Rep. Karen Bass Wednesday in Los Angeles. The discussion will focus on President Obama’s plan for improving education for America’s children and efforts to address persistent issues of equity in achieving quality education for all California children.

As assistant secretary, Ali's Office for Civil Rights enforces U.S. civil rights laws pertaining to education — ensuring that the nation's schools receiving federal funding refrain from discriminatory conduct related to race, sex, disability or age.
