Few Americans can speak more eloquently of the lessons learned
in the journey toward equal treatment - or address more poignantly
the battles still before us - than Ward Connerly. His
tireless crisscrossing of the nation speaking about race
preferences on behalf of the American Civil Rights Institute have
taught him as many lessons as he has imparted to his hundreds
of audiences. His devotion to the civil rights cause is
inspiring and noteworthy, including his campaigns to end sexual and
racial discrimination through quotas and preferences in California,
Washington, and most recently, in Michigan.
He continues to envision a future for the movement that will see
an end to such divisive and unfair preferences in
America. Advancing this endeavor on Election Day 2008, Mr.
Connerly and coalition partners will offer Civil Rights
Initiatives in several states. As part of his remarks, Mr.
Connerly promises to announce at least one or more of the
states chosen for "Super Tuesday for Equality in 2008." Join
us for this important assessment of where we are as a nation on the
road to true equality for all of our citizens.
