Over 25 years ago, California was much different from the state we now know and love. A conservative political climate, national recession, and shift in demographics led to a xenophobic backlash, coming to head as the anti-immigrant ballot initiative of Prop 187 in 1994.
While touted as the Save our State (SOS) initiative, Prop 187 was simply a racist attack on our communities, targeting Latino and Asian immigrants.
● Prop 187 banned undocumented immigrants from schools, hospitals and other public services
● Prop 187 required all state and government employees to report suspected undocumented immigrants
Prop 187 also marked a turning point for our labor and civil rights movement. While conservatives expected us to hide in fear, we banded together and mobilized by the millions, empowering some of our most disenfranchised communities and essentially overturning the racist initiative.
Join us in honoring the movement that crushed Prop 187 and recommit to standing up against racism and fear.
