Open Letter to San Diego’s Mayor and City Council, Concerning Reported Intent to “Challenge” California’s Constitution

Reports indicate that San Diego is set to "push" a "challenge" to the California State Constitution's prohibition against racial discrimination in public contracting, despite the actual knowledge of all involved that it would violate at least the state Constitution (and likely violate federal law, as well). We wrote, suggesting they should voluntarily call that off, before the Courts have to do so for them (and assign them, potentially, personal liability for resulting damages).

Open Letter on Behalf of Shareholders to Officers and Directors of Dropbox, Inc.

Last week, reports indicated that a single senior executive at Dropbox had tweeted that she and it would “choose to prioritize folks in our BIPOC and URM communities” in filling a job opening.  As initially covered, the disclosure appeared to reflect a single executive’s rogue statement. The ACR Project’s further investigation has determined otherwise. Accordingly, on behalf of shareholders, we've demanded the retraction of the company's illegal, discriminatory hiring and promotional policies.

Letter to NY Demanding Abandonment of Race-Based COVID-care Rationing

The ACR Project has demanded that New York State abandon its illegal, unconstitutional policy of rationing access to scarce COVID-19 treatments based on patient race and ethnicity. Under the policy, race and ethnicity dictate allocation of the most effective COVID-19 treatments away from those most at risk. That violates the 14th Amendment's equal protection clause, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, and New York's own Human Rights Law.

In its current form, the "Making It ... with Lowe's" promotion discriminates based on race, ethnicity, sex, and gender, in violation of both state and Federal law.
