WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, in reaction to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Supreme Court’s decision in Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard; Students for Fair Admissions v. UNCFor Our Future Executive Director Sky Gallegos issued the following statement. 

“Today’s ruling was not just regressive and politically-motivated, it will worsen racial inequality in education and will have far-reaching, lasting and detrimental effects on working families across our country.

“It flies in the face of For Our Future’s mission to advance racial and social justice, to strengthen public education and to create shared economic prosperity. We remain all the more committed and motivated to hold elected officials accountable and to continue to work towards these goals in order to create a brighter and more prosperous future for students, workers and all Americans.”
