Election Special - The Future of: Affirmative Action
Time & Location
About The Event
In 1996, Californians passed Proposition 209, banning the discrimination and preferential treatment of a person’s race, sex, ethnicity, or national origin. This year’s election proposes a new ballot initiative, Proposition 16, that would repeal Prop 209 if passed. What does this mean for our community? Is Affirmative Action a step in the right direction? Or will it polarize our community further? The OC Forum is proud to present this timely program on the Future of: Affirmative Action. Join our expert panel as they discuss the pros and cons of Proposition 16 in this special election program on equity and race relations.
