It Appears That Initiatives to Ban Race-Sensitive Admissions at Public Universities Will Be on the Ballot in Three States This November

Ward Connerly is the African-American entrepreneur who led the efforts to ban race-sensitive admissions at state-operated universities in California, Washington, and Michigan. Now Connerly’s organizations have submitted enough signatures to secure a place on the ballot this November for public referenda in Nebraska and Arizona that would ban race-sensitive admissions at public universities in those states.

Connerly had previously submitted enough signatures to qualify for a similar referendum to gain ballot access in Colorado.

Efforts to get similar proposals on the ballot in Oklahoma and Missouri were unsuccessful.
