The people of Arizona need to be informed that Ward Connerly’s deceptive “civil rights” initiative in the form of Referendum 107 must not be passed. People should know that he has gone all over the country trying to get this kind of referendum passed in many states. The so-called “Arizona Civil Rights Initiative” is a lie. If this sham referendum passes, it will mean several programs that help women and communities of color could end, such as the City of Phoenix Teen Parents Program; programs that seek to encourage women to pursue academic majors and careers in science and engineering; and the YWCA Bright Futures Program, to name a few.
