Race-conscious remedies make certain that all Americans are considered fairly and equally for jobs and educational opportunities. Racial “opportunity gaps” persist. Blacks and Latinos continue to lag significantly behind Whites in employment, income, education, and access to health care.
Race-conscious policies are designed to help companies, organizations, and educational institutions weigh these factors in order to truly evaluate candidates equally and fairly. These policies provide equal access to opportunity for qualified individuals who might not otherwise have had a chance.
EJS defends race-conscious policies aimed at remedying past discrimination, fighting present-day discrimination, and promoting diversity in our society.
