Clinton Twp.) said MCRI had constitu-
tional attorneys work on the amend-
ment, and that the group's decision to
amend the constitution is justified.
"Apparently the constitution which we
thought prohibited discrimination does
not," he said.
Drolet also questioned the legal
basis of the lawsuit. "I do question the
lawsuit's decision to go after content of
the petition using the Board of Can-
vassers as their target," he said. Drolet
said that judging content is not offi-
cially under the board's purview. Their
job is to examine the formatting -
such as font size, the placement of cer-
tain clauses and the inclusion of cer-
tain mandatory phrases.
Similar ballot initiatives have faced
lawsuits in the past. Justin Jones, direc-
tor of policy and planning for the
American Civil Rights Coalition, said
the group had about 14 lawsuits in
California and Washington. ACRC is
MCRI's parent organization.
California banned race-conscious
policies in public institutions in 1996.
Washington passed a similar measure in
1998. Both decisions were due to simi-
lar ballot initiatives begun by ACRC.
"I don't even think they think they're
going to win. We've seen this before in
other states," Drolet said.
But most of those lawsuits were
filed after the petition drive had suc-
ceeded and the issue was on the ballot,
A number of organizations have
backed BAMN's legal efforts. These
include Democratic presidential candi-
date Al Sharpton, the Michigan Leg-
islative Black Caucus, two chapters of
the American Federation of State,
County and Municipal Employees and
United for Equality and Affirmative
Action, which intervened with BAMN
in this summer's U.S. Supreme Court
case on the University's admissions
policies. Both Sharpton and the Black
Caucus were recently added as plain-
tiffs in the case.
Despite this opposition, MCRI's peti-
tion drive continues. The group has
spent the past month enlisting support-
ers, mailing petitions and acquiring
funds. They have received a marginal
amount of signatures, but Drolet said he
did not have specific numbers.
In January, one week after the
MCRI campaign officially began, the
initiative received an unexpected flood
of supportive responses, Drolet said.
He said MCRI currently has enough
volunteers focusing on mailing peti-
tions instead of going door-to-door in
the cold weather. MCRI hopes to even-
tually send out "tens of thousands" of
petitions per week, he said.
Funding, which has been a concern
since the beginning of the campaign,
continues to come in, though in small-
er portions than needed, Drolet said.
Young people across the state com-
mitted to the initiative such as college
Republican groups and the Young Amer-
icans for Freedom have begun to collect
signatures. The state's Libertarian Party
has also pledged support, even as the
state Republican Party has formally
denounced the campaign, Drolet said.
University YAF co-chair and LSA
sophomore Laura Davis said that her
group has and will continue to collect
signatures in the Michigan Union.
Last Friday, while members of
YAF collected signatures in the
Union basement, BAMN protested as
students signed in support of the ini-
tiative. As petition supporters signed,
BAMN protesters occasionally cried
"We are launching a 'Decline to Sign'
campaign that will be a rigorous First
Amendment campaign to engage the
petitioners in debate over affirmative
action," BAMN national co-chair Luke
