Press Conference: Supreme Court Issues Opinion on Affirmative Action
About This Event

This morning, the Supreme Court issued opinions on several high-profile and contentious cases, including Fisher vs. University of Texas. AEI Visiting Fellow and Director of the Project on Fair Representation Edward Blum will host a media conference featuring Abigail Fisher later today to respond to the opinion. Ms. Fisher will make a statement regarding the outcome of the case and take a few questions.

Edward Blum has, for the last 20 years, worked with individuals and entities to bring breakthrough civil rights cases to the forefront of our nation’s judicial system. He and his organization The Project on Fair Representation (POFR), a nonprofit legal defense foundation, played a critical role in bringing two landmark race relations cases before the Supreme Court this term, providing counsel to both Ms. Fisher and Shelby County.
