Voters will decide on the fate of two California constitutional amendments in November, both of which were a priority for the state's Legislative Black Caucus. 

ACA 5 would repeal Prop 209, which bans affirmative action in the state. ACA 6 would give voting rights to parolees. 

We check in on the initiatives. If you have thoughts on the measures, call us at 866-893-5722.
