A group of Harvard University students and alumni of color are standing with the university as it remains at the center of an affirmative action suit.
“Asian Americans, including Chinese Americans like myself, benefit from affirmative action,” Sally Chen, a graduating Asian American Harvard student who participated in the brief, told NBC Asian America.
Removal of affirmative action would overwhelmingly benefit white applicants, rather than give Asian Americans a bump, a 2016 study revealed.
“An attack on affirmative action is an attack on racial justice, educational equity, black and brown communities, and immigrants and refugees,” Chen explained.
“Cross-community solidarity in support of affirmative action is crucial to advancing the civil rights of all communities of color.”
