Proposition 16: Confronting Myths & Dilemmas in the AAPI Community

Tuesday, October 6, 2020 | 12:00 - 1:30pm

This is an online event via Zoom.


Join UCLA AASC for a discussion on California's Proposition 16!

Proposition 16 is one of the most important ballot initiatives addressing the issue of racial justice in California. There are many myths and misunderstandings surrounding this bill that reverses Proposition 209 (1996) and allows for the consideration of race, sex, and ethnicity among other factors in public contracting, civil service employment, and public higher education admissions decisions. Learn from researchers, policymakers, and organizers about the facts and future impacts of Proposition 16 as we get out the vote in the November elections.

Before the event, learn about Proposition 16: Allow Diversity as a Factor in Public Employment, Education, and Contracting Decisions from the California Secretary of State Official Voter Information Guide:
