Connerly Creates National Organization to End Affirmative Action

Ward Connerly, the University of California Regent who led the fight to pass the California anti-affirmative action Proposition 209, plans to start a national organization dedicated to ending equal opportunity programs for women and people of color. Though a judge has continued the injunction on 209 in California, over 20 other states are introducing anti-affirmative action legislation.
