The End of Affirmative Action: How SCOTUS is coming after BIPOC students
Hosted by ChangeLawyers, the ACS Bay Area Lawyer Chapter, and Equal Justice Society.
In 2022, a newly radical Supreme Court shocked our country by undoing decades of precedent. Up next? Stripping away race-conscious admission policies that overwhelmingly help BIPOC students create a better future for themselves.
California already ended affirmative action 30 years ago, and the results have been devastating. Black, Latinx, and Native comprise a smaller percentage of law and medical schools than in the 1990s.
Our panelists will discuss the possible outcomes of Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA) v. Harvard, and offer potential solutions to ensure higher education is accessible to BIPOC students.
