Affirmative Action: A Diversity of Criticisms
Monday, November 5, 2007 (7:00pm - 9:00pm)
UCLA Campus: Ackerman Grand Ballroom
Eleven years ago, California voters, in a blow to advocates of Affirmative Action, passed Proposition 209, banning public entities from discriminating on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, and national origin.
Opponents of the proposition responded with claims that, far from promoting discrimination, Affirmative Action provides just compensation for past harms done to minorities and is an important tool for creating racial equality and promoting diversity.
On November 5, the 11th anniversary of the passing of Proposition 209, you are invited to hear our distinguished panel of speakers deliver a variety of critical perspectives on Affirmative Action:
- Ward Connerly, a former Regent of the University of California, spearhead of the Proposition 209 campaign, and Chairman of the American Civil Rights Institute
- Richard Sander, a professor at the UCLA School of Law and a long-time supporter of Affirmative Action who has recently published several empirical critiques of the effectiveness of certain types of Affirmative Action programs
- Peter Schwartz, the former chairman of the board of directors of the Ayn Rand Institute, who has written and spoken extensively on multiculturalism and racism from the Objectivist philosophic perspective
The answers to these questions and many more will be addressed in a panel hosted by LOGIC, with support from the Ayn Rand Institute, and co-sponsored by the College Republicans and Bruin Republicans.
This event is FREE and open to the public. BruinCard holders receive priority seating.
