Show up for AZ Civil Rights hearing on Tuesday

The Arizona Civil Rights Initiative (SCR 1031) will be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee on Tuesday June 16 at 2:00pm.

SCR 1031 will amend the state constitution to prohibit affirmative action programs that grant preference based on race or gender in public contracting, public employment or public education.

In Arizona, if the House and Senate vote in favor of such a concurrent resolution, they can refer the Civil Rights Initiative to the general election ballot for November 2010.

The House Government Committee passed the House version of the bill last Wednesday 6 to 3. The Republicans on the committee voted unanimously to pass the bill. Republican members, Antenori, Crump, Driggs, Gowan, Montenegro and Nichols deserve praise for their support to end race preferences in public contracting, public employment and public education.

We need to show the legislature that there is strong support for ending affirmative action programs that grant preferential treatment in our state. If you or friends and family can attend all you have to do is sign in and specify “in favor of,” you will not need to prepare any comments or speak on behalf of the bill.

The ACLU, NAACP and other members of the left will stop and nothing to preserve their radical agenda. They will be at the committee hearing in full force misrepresenting the initiative. Now is the chance to fight back.

Contact your state Senator and tell them to support SCR 1031, click on this link for a member roster.

When: Tuesday, June 16th at 2:00pm
Where: Senate Building (next to the capitol)
1700 West Washington Street
Phoenix, AZ 85007
