Restore Affirmative Action & Overturn Prop 209

9th Circuit Hearing on Prop 209:

Monday, Feb. 13th, 8:30AM
9th Circuit Court of Appeals
95 – 7th St. (at Mission), S.F. (near Civic Center BART)

California’s majority black, Latina/o, and Native American students are being systematically denied the basic right to public higher education because of the anti-affirmative action law, Proposition 209, and the UC administration’s refusal to take positive action to counter it. On February 13, BAMN’s lawsuit to overturn Proposition 209 goes before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. This case, together with BAMN’s lawsuit against an identical initiative in Michigan, will eventually go before the U.S. Supreme Court and can become our generation’s Brown v. Board of Education. Fill the courtroom and make your voice heard.
