2020 Ballot Measure Advocacy

The Student Senate for California Community Colleges (SSCCC) Board of Directors supported Proposition 16, a ballot measure heading to the November 2020 ballot that seeks to repeal Proposition 209 (1996), which stated that the government and public institutions cannot discriminate against or grant preferential treatment to persons on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in public employment, public education, and public contracting. As a result, state and local entities could establish a wider range of policies and programs so long as they are consistent with federal and state law related to equal protection. This ballot measure is extremely important particularly given the national focus on social inequities and injustice. 

The SSCCC understands the importance of this ballot measure and is pleased to provide a series of tools and materials to inform and support your local advocacy or support of this important ballot measure. 

Please reach out to vpla@studentsenate@ccc.org for any questions you have regarding the subjects discussed in this document.
