FROM PROP. 209 TO PROP. 16 Historical, Legal, and Activist Perspectives on Affirmative Action

October 7 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm | Online

Californians have endured a statewide ban on race- and gender-based affirmative action policies since the passage of Proposition 209, which is widely recognized for its devastating impact on advancing racial justice in labor and education. The 2019 court case against Harvard University alleging that affirmative action policies discriminate against Asian-Americans amplifies the need for improved public understanding of affirmative action policies as legal remedies to recognize and dismantle racial harm. In November, Proposition 16 would restore affirmative action in CA. Join us for this panel discussing the legacies of Proposition 209 and the promise of Proposition 16.
