Freedom Bus Tour

September 30, 1996

The Freedom Bus Tour is moving through California to "Save the Dream" of affirmative action for women and minorities. Featuring Civil Rights leaders Rev. Jesse Jackson, Women's Feminist Majority's Ellie Smeal, Patricia Ireland, and United Farm Workers' Dolores Huerta, the bus went to several Los Angeles and Pasadena churches and UC Santa Barbara yesterday. After stops in San Diego, the bus moved to Los Angeles today, starting with a press conference at the Los Angeles City Hall. Uniting women who have benefited from the now threatened affirmative action, the press conference featured women leaders from business, medicine, labor, girls' sports teams, peace officers, elected office, and city employment. The Freedom Bus moved next to a rally at UCLA, then Cal State Northridge and an evening fund raiser. The Freedom Bus will be traveling to communities and colleges throughout California to get out the message and raise public awareness about Proposition 209. Call 1-800-STOP-209 to find out where the bus is going next and to join Jesse, Ellie, Patricia, and Dolores on the Freedom Bus!
