Henderson Center for Social Justice, the Insight Center for Community Economic Development, and the Chief Justice Earl Warren Institute on Race, Ethnicity and Diversity will provide legislators and staff with information regarding the impact of the elimination of affirmative action on business, employment and education opportunities for people of color and women of all racial groups.
