Notice of Intent to Sue CA Entities
Today, on behalf of the Californians for Equal Rights Foundation and individual San Francisco taxpayers, the American Civil Rights Project notified the City and County of San Francisco, the San Francisco Unified School District, the UC System, and the State of California’s Health and Human Services Agency of our intent to sue to halt their illegally discriminatory guaranteed income programs.
This host of governmental agencies participates in (and uses state resources to advance) a set of four guaranteed income programs that violate the 14th Amendment and the California Constitution by disqualifying beneficiaries based on race, ethnicity, sex, sexuality, and gender. As the agencies are all federal funding recipients, the same programs’ racial discrimination also violates Title VI.
