The 25th Anniversary of Proposition 187: Challenges and Opportunities for Immigrant Integration and Political Identity in California

Event Date
King Hall

Wednesday, November 13 and Thursday, November 14, 2019, King Hall Room 1001

UC Davis Law Review Symposium, Volume 53

California Proposition 187, passed in 1994, was the first modern anti-immigrant state legislation. While the United States District Court for the Central District of California ruled the law unconstitutional soon after its passage, the law’s effects on immigration policies and the Latinx community in California remain. The UC Davis School of Law and UC Davis Law Review are hosting a panel and an academic symposium to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the passage of Prop. 187 on November 13-14, 2019. The panel will feature litigators who challenged Prop. 187 in the courts. The academic symposium will discuss the influence Prop. 187 had on immigration at the state and federal levels, the political environment in California, and Latinx and immigrant communities in four panel discussions. Join us in exploring the legislation and the legal scholarship around the current state of affairs for Latinx 25 years after Prop. 187.


The event is free and open to the public. Please register here.
