Do you know who this man is? If you support the legacy and accomplishments of Affirmative Action then you want to know who he is.
His name is Ward Connerly and he is THE BIGGEST OPPOSITION to Affirmative Action. He became famous with his successful Proposition 209 campaign in California which passed in 1996. It eliminated Affirmative Action in the state. Since then, Connerly has assisted in successful campaigns for Washington’s I-200, One Florida and Michigan’s Proposal 2.
In 1996, Connerly and Dusty Rhodes (President of National Review) created an organization called the American Civil Rights Institute. The main focus of the ACRI is on three areas: assisting organizations in other states with their efforts to educate the public about racial and gender preferences, assisting federal representatives with public education on the issue, and monitoring implementation and legal action.
Connerly and his supporters go state to state to get (force) anti-Affirmative Action legislation onto ballots in hopes of overturning so-called set aside programs. He is now leading the charge in Missouri to end Affirmative Action.
Keep an eye out for Connerly because he is on a mission.
