Assemble for Equity: A Rally for Proposition 15

“What is the meaning of the 4th of July to the negro” was asked by Frederick Douglass over 150 years ago. It was asked due to the enslavement of black people who lacked the same freedoms, equality, and humanity this nation’s founders fought to obtain for themselves.

About the Event

“What is the meaning of the 4th of July to the negro” was asked by Frederick Douglass over 150 years ago. It was asked due to the enslavement of black people who lacked the same freedoms, equality, and humanity this nation’s founders fought to obtain for themselves. Today, we have continued to see Black people’s lives devalued by the systematic failures still prevalent within the architecture of our nation. Yet, in a glimmer of hope, ACA 5, which will repeal Prop. 209 and reestablish affirmative action in California, is making headway in Sacramento and will likely go to the voters this November. Supporting it will have an immensely positive impact on the Black community and all ethnically minoritized communities in California. By coming together and sending a clear message of support, we can help provide better access, equity, and hope for future generations and you can help lead the way.
