No Re-Appointment of Ward Connerly to Univ. of California Board of Regents! sign now

Whereas, Ward Connerly has used his position as University of California Regent to establish himself as the principal leader and public spokesperson for the attack on affirmative action in California and across the United States.
Whereas, Ward Connerly is therefore more responsible than any other individual for making it more difficult for underrepresented minority students to gain access to higher education in California.
Whereas, Ward Connerlys continuing presence on the UC Board of Regents sends a not welcome message to underrepresented minority students across the country, which makes even harder the already difficult efforts of the UCs flagship campuses to achieve their goals of diversity and equal educational opportunity for all.
Whereas, Ward Connerly is a needlessly provocative, divisive, and polarizing figure whose political exploitation of his position as UC Regent makes uniting our campuses more difficult and increases the aspects of campus life that tend to create a hostile environment for minority students.
Whereas, when Connerlys term as Regent expires in March 2005, it would be extraordinary to re-appoint to a 12-year term a Regent who has already been appointed and will have served twelve years.
Whereas, such an extraordinary re-appointment would send a very negative and divisive signal to the people of California and the nation that the governor and legislature of this state, and the UC Regents themselves, are insensitive to the concerns of millions of Latino, black, Native American, and other citizens and wish to maintain a politics of racial division and bitterness.

Therefore, we the undersigned call on the Governor and Legislature of the State of California to NOT re-appoint Ward Connerly to the UC Board of Regents, and to name to the position currently held by Ward Connerly a qualified candidate committed to diversity whose appointment will not further the hostility, division, and bitterness Ward Connerlys position on the Regents has fostered.
