Rally for Our Rights: We Are 25 Years Beyond Prop 187

Event Date → November 9, 2019

We are CA, Somos CA convened local leaders and advocates of the Latino community to celebrate the 25 years since the removal of Proposition 187.

Pattern

Summary:

Prop 187 was a pivotal moment in California’s history. Our state was engaged in a fierce debate about who deserved to be a Californian and share in all our state has to offer. Prop 187, a symbolic representation of that debate, became a profound turning point where California went from a state apprehensive about immigration to a state of diversity and prosperity.

We Are – 25 Years Beyond Prop 187 is a campaign to honor Prop 187 by ensuring we never go back to the racist and xenophobic environment that enabled it to come into law. It’s a campaign to remind us that we must come together now, as we did then, to stand for equality, stand for immigrant rights, and above all, stand for each other.
