Statement from NYSYR Chair Peter Giunta on Landmark SCOTUS Ruling that Affirmative Action is Unconstitutional

By June 29, 2023Statements

“Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court validates our long-held belief that the Affirmative Action admission practices used by many of the nation’s leading academic institutions is unconstitutional in that it prioritizes admission based predominately on race. For far too long this practice has been used to discriminate against certain groups of students, especially Asian Americans, wrongly dismissing their unique experiences and personal triumphs over adversity.

We firmly believe that this decision upholds our great national creed that all Americans are created equal under God, and we appreciate the work that this Supreme Court has done to defend the principles of our Constitution.”
