The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) unveiled an initiative called “Mission Equity” on Monday that seeks to “streamline its programs, procurements, grants, regulations and policies to remove systemic inequitable barriers and challenges facing underserved communities.”

“NASA is a 21st-century agency with 22nd-century goals. To be successful, it’s critical that NASA takes a comprehensive approach to address the challenges to equity we see today,” Bill Nelson, the NASA administrator, said in a statement. “The agency’s new Mission Equity is a bold and necessary challenge for NASA to ensure our programs are accessible to all Americans and, especially, those living in historically underserved communities across the country. Because when NASA opens doors to talent previously left untapped, the universe is the limit.”

In order to streamline the critical race theory-aligned initiative, NASA released a public information request titled “Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities in NASA Programs, Contracts, and Grants.” The federal agency says it’s seeking to address the following:

Diversity and Equal Opportunity at NASA and in the STEM Community Opportunities for NASA to Leverage its Data, Expertise, and Missions to Help Underserved Communities Barriers/Gaps to Accessing Current NASA Grants, Programs, and Procurements Engagement and Outreach with Organizations and Individuals from Underserved and Underrepresented Communities

While NASA references equality of opportunity in its release, that does not align with the racial “equity” title, which means equality of outcome. In order to build out the program, NASA desires feedback from “Black, Latino, and Indigenous and Native American persons, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other persons of color; members of religious minorities; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) persons; persons with disabilities; persons who live in rural areas; and persons otherwise adversely affected by persistent poverty or inequality.”

In a video put out in the press release, NASA says it is “on a mission of equity,” and “we hope you’ll join us on this mission.”

NASA is only the latest federal agency to push leftist doctrine. Since May, the Central Intelligence Agency has been releasing videos that push gender theory and radical feminism.
