On Sunday 9/27 at 7 pm Pacific Time, Californians for Equal Rights/ No on 16 will proudly host a webinar featuring a number of Democrats against Prop. 16! Counter to the Yes side’s wild accusation painting our just fight as pro-Trump or pro-white-supremacy, No on 16 is in fact supported by people with different political persuasions. We are honored to have a group of liberal supporters willing to speak up against racial discrimination disguised as “diversity”, against elitist billionaire interests behind Prop.16, and against scapegoating Americans of Asian descent.

Although Prop. 16 is endorsed by a number of prominent Democrats, it is far from being a partisan issue uniting all Democrats. In fact, the respected Public Policy Research Institute (PPRI) survey shows that a third of Democrats would vote no. According to a 2019 Pew Research Center survey, most Americans support affirmative action in general terms, but nearly 75% of Americans surveyed do not think race or ethnicity should be considered at all in college admissions.
Race-based affirmative action has always been a controversial topic. In present times, it takes courage and conviction for Democrats to speak up publicly against Prop. 16. Those who oppose Prop. 16 desire to help the disadvantaged, but they also think Prop. 16 is not the way to go. Tune in on this Sunday at 7pm PST to hear more from our valiant speakers!
