Arizona ends affirmative action

Bill: Prop 107 (HCR 2019)

A legislatively-referred constitutional amendment approved by nearly 60% of voters in 2010, Prop107 (The Arizona Civil Rights Amendment) says that “A ‘yes’ vote shall have the effect of prohibiting the State of Arizona from giving preferential treatment to or discriminating against any person or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin. The prohibition applies to preferences or discrimination in public employment, education or contracting.”

Also: “Arizona voters approve cutting affirmative action by state, local governments”

“Affirmative action no longer needed”
