WASHINGTON – The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the Legal Defense Fund, Asian Americans Advancing Justice – AAJC, and LatinoJustice held a joint press briefing to condemn the Supreme Court majority’s bigoted agenda and decision to betray our shared values of fairness and equal opportunity. The decisions, Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA) v. Harvard and Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA) v. University of North Carolina, rejected nearly 50 years of precedent. Civil rights leaders spoke on the unacceptable decision to roll back decades of progress on civil rights and racial justice and detailed the united commitment across race and ethnicity to build a multiracial democracy where all students have an unprejudiced opportunity to pursue higher education.
