Why HOPE Votes #YesOnProp16
HOPE recently released its Economic Status of Latinas report showing widening education gaps and economic barriers. Our report found that while the Latina high school graduation rate in California is 86%, only 15% of Latinas have a higher education degree. The systems in place to educate and prepare us to compete in business and the workplace have failed us - this is why we are supporting Prop 16.
HOPE supports Prop 16, which will end the ban on Affirmative Action in California, to allow government and education entities to consider race, ethnicity, and gender in admissions and contracting decisions to help ease the significant disparities that exist today.
We believe that Prop 16 is the concrete step that is needed to begin building a more just future for Latinos who are often left behind. Specifically, Proposition 16 promotes opportunity and success in California higher education – a key driver of economic prosperity—and will offer Latina businesses a fair chance in competing for government contracts.
#Yeson16 builds on HOPE’s legacy of advocating to eliminate racial inequalities in California, dating back to our active participation in fighting against Prop 187 (1994) and Prop 209 (1996) and now again in 2020.
