Yes on Prop 16

The Opportunity for All Coalition is moving rapidly into campaign mode to support the passage of Proposition 16, which will ask California voters in November to allow equal opportunity policies to be used by state and local governments to promote good jobs, good wages, and quality schools for everyone.
