Proposition 16 – End the Ban on Affirmative Action


Proposition 16 affirms that race, gender, and ethnicity can be considered in hiring and admissions processes, and overturns the racist Proposition 209 which banned affirmative action in state institutions. (Propostion 209 was passed nearly 25 years ago in 1996.)

Affirmative action accounts for systemic and systematic barriers for entry into workplaces and schools. Race, ethnicity and gender consciousness in admissions and hiring processes promotes equality and diverse learning and workspaces.
