The Multiracial Activist - Advocacy

Advocacy

The Multiracial Activist participated in the efforts in the late 1990s to allow respondents to the U.S. Census and other government forms that collect racial classification data to check more than one racial classification box. Beginning in 1998, The Multiracial Activist published a letter from Bob Jones University, which eventually led to the repeal of their long-standing ban on interracial relationships among their student population.

In addition to working on racial classification issues, multiracial identity and interracial marriage, The Multiracial Activist and its founder currently serve on a diverse variety of civil liberties coalitions. Most notable are the Coalition for Patient Privacy, Asylum Working Group (sponsored by Human Rights First), Liberty Coalition and Defense of Freedom.
