As part of BAMN's lawsuit against Ward Connerly's anti-affirmative-action amendment to the Michigan Constitution, Proposal 2, BAMN did a legal deposition of WARD CONNERLY, the architect of the bans on affirmative action in Michigan, California, and Washington. If successful, this lawsuit would restore affirmative action in all the U.S. states that have banned it.
WARD CONNERLY is the frontman for the national right-wing attack on affirmative action and integration programs in colleges and K-12 education. He is currently trying to qualify anti-affirmative-action ballot initiatives for the November 2008 ballot in five states: Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska, and Oklahoma.
SHANTA DRIVER conducted the deposition. She is a civil rights attorney and the national co-chair of BAMN, the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration, and Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary.
