Keep discrimination illegal, no on prop 16!
The California Civil Rights Initiative protects us from discrimination. Prop 16 will repeal it and divide us. Vote no! Learn more about why it won’t bring us equal opportunity or affirmative action, but rather preferential treatment.

The text of Prop 209, 37 words:
“The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group, on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education or public contracting”.
The text of Prop 209: 37 words, simple and direct…true equality…government neutrality with respect to the pursuit of happiness by citizens. Ask those who seek to remove 209 from the CA constitution. “Why? What do you dislike about the text?”

“In the United States everyone is equal and everyone should be treated with respect. Let’s not disrespect anyone by making them feel weak and vulnerable because of their race but work towards empowering everyone to succeed based on merit.” – Aparna Madireddi, candidate for Mayor of San Ramon
