San Francisco Chamber of Commerce Opposes CCRI

Voting overwhelmingly in support of affirmative action, the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce became the first major business in California to oppose the self-titled California Civil Rights Initiative, a ballot measure that would end affirmative action programs for women and minorities and gut sex discrimination law in the state. The chamber, which has 1,900 members including multinational corporations, businesses such as the Bank of America and Pac Bell, and small local businesses, is considered the largest and most influential business group to take a stand on the initiative.
