Civil Rights Leaders: Supreme Court Michigan Ruling a Step Backward
Lorraine C. Miller, NAACP Interim President and CEO
"The Supreme Court’s decision embraces discrimination and rejects diversity. It’s in our nation’s best interest to ensure talented students from all backgrounds get a close look and a fair shot at overcoming obstacles to educational opportunity. The NAACP is committed to fighting Michigan’s constitutional amendment at the ballot box and helping other states advance diversity in higher education."
