Winning Strategies to Combat Discrimination in California

Tuesday, March 26, 2024 at 3:00-4:00 p.m. EDT/12:00-1:00 p.m. PDT

Virtual via Zoom



California is at a crossroads on one of the most fundamental civil rights issues of our time: 

Should the government be allowed to discriminate against individuals based on their race, sex, or ethnicity? 

In 1996, California voters overwhelmingly approved Proposition 209 to prohibit such discriminatory practices in public employment, public education, and public contracting. Then, in 2020, the voters overwhelmingly rejected Proposition 16, which sought to repeal Proposition 209. But now there’s a new threat—Assembly Constitutional Amendment 7 (ACA7) aims to gut Proposition 209’s protections and open the door for the government to discriminate through “research-based” affirmative action programs. 

You have the power to defend true equal rights in California. Join Pacific Legal Foundation and the Californians for Equal Rights Foundation for a virtual discussion on identifying unlawful discrimination and taking legal action to enforce Prop 209. 

Our expert panel will share real-world examples of illegal racial preferences, arm you with the knowledge to recognize these pernicious practices, and explain what makes a strong legal challenge.  

Don’t miss this opportunity to get empowered and take a stand against discriminatory government policies in California. Secure your spot today.
