Prop 16 and Affirmative Action: A Voter Game Plan Event from LAist/KPCC on Vimeo.

Among the slew of measures on the November ballot is Proposition 16, which would erase the ban on affirmative action at public institutions from California’s constitution.

That ban was put in place in 1996 when voters approved Proposition 209, which prohibits the state from considering race, ethnicity and gender in hiring and contracting for all government-run institutions, and for admissions to public universities.
