News Report from this Media Briefing

Event Overview

On Oct. 31, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on two cases — SFFA v. Harvard and SFFA v. University of North Carolina — that will determine the future of affirmative action. The cases bring together universities, civil rights organizations, and student activists in support of race conscious admissions policies and equitable education access for students of color.

Speakers will provide background on the Harvard and UNC cases, discuss what’s at stake for students of color in maintaining race-conscious admissions, and the power of student activism in the effort to support affirmative action.
