Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The California Civil Rights Initiative Records document the history of this anti-affirmative action ballot measure from the first attempt at placing it on the California ballot in 1991, through the successful campaign for the 1996 version of the initiative, Proposition 209.
The California Civil Rights Initiative (CCRI) was co-authored and managed by Glynn Custred and Thomas E. Wood. They began work on the anti-affirmative action legislative initiative in 1991 and developed the campaign for CCRI from that time to 1996 when California voters approved Proposition 209. Their intention in bringing this initiative to the public was to end affirmative action gender and race quotas and preferences in state employment, contracting, and education in California.
