On the opposition's misnamed "Protect Arizona Freedom" website (should be more accurately named "Protect Arizona Freedom to Discriminate in Government"), they complain that certain types of government programs benefiting women and minorities will be eliminated. Here's one example they list:
Arizona State University Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) program. This program seeks to improve the climate for women in the Fulton School at ASU. Currently, WISE offers many programs to encourage women to pursue academic majors and careers in engineering.In reality? From the Yes on 107 website,
WISE, a higher education program, is geared toward women, but it is also open to males. In California, Washington and Michigan, three states that have passed similar initiatives, WISE programs continue to operate.
Unfortunately, the opposition has made it clear in the past that it will use tactics like this to try and defeat the initiative. Stay tuned.
