BLSA – Affirmative Action Rally in Ann Arbor – Wed. Oct. 10

The Midwest Region of the National Black Law Students Association urges you to GET ON THE BUS!

This Wednesday, Oct. 10th the Supreme Court will reconsider the constitutionality of race-conscious admissions programs known to many as “affirmative action.”  We are calling for all students and concerned community members throughout the Midwest to stand with us at the University of Michigan, the school where the Supreme Court last upheld the constitutionality of affirmative action, in solidarity with the rally being held at the U.S. Supreme Court.  We cannot let this important decision be made without making our voices heard.  YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A BLSA MEMBER TO PARTICIPATE, THERE IS NO CHARGE, AND ALL ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND.
