Join us in September to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The most sweeping civil rights legislation since Reconstruction, the Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination of all kinds based on race, color, religion, or national origin. This is the second in a series of events over three years (2013 to 2015) observing the 50th anniversaries of four of our nation’s seminal civil rights tipping points. The Equal Justice Society commemorated the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington on Wednesday, August 28, 2013, at the Oakland Museum.

This year’s event will honor:

California State Senator Ed Hernandez
Author of SCA 5, seeking to partially repeal Prop. 209

Frederick Jordan
Champion of minority business enterprises (MBEs)

Jane and Howard Moore, Jr.
Civil rights attorneys and movement pioneers

Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
Co-counsel with EJS in social science briefs in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, and in Mount Holly v. Mt. Holly Gardens Citizens in Action, Inc.
