Event Description

Current law prevents our elected leaders from taking targeted action to fight discrimination based on race and gender.

Voting “Yes” on Proposition 16 would reverse the ban on equal opportunity policies like affirmative action so that elected leaders can design programs that provide good jobs, better wages, and access to great schools for all Californians.

  • Passing Prop 16 will allow the State of California to restore affirmative action with the goal of eliminating discrimination in state contracts, hiring and college admissions.
  • Passing Prop 16 allows us to remedy gender bias and racism, and in doing so, build a California that reflects our shared values.
  • California is one of only 9 states that outlaws equal opportunity policies in hiring and education. The only way to move California forward is to pass Proposition 16 – reinstating affirmative action and actively combating systemic racism.

California is one of the most diverse states in the country. It’s time our laws reflect the strength of our diversity!
