When Joseph Awaida, Raihan Dakhil and their 3-year-old son Omar were fatally struck by an intoxicated driver last Halloween, it sent shockwaves throughout the Beach community.

Good morning, Long Beach State,
I’d first like to thank those who registered and voted in this year’s very important election. Your actions are the foundation of our democracy and, as students, our voices continue to evoke the necessary change in our nation. This cycle has elicited strong passions, uncertainty, and anxiety for so many of our students.

What You Need to Know About Prop 16
What is Proposition 16? Proposition 16 is a measure that appears on the November 2020 ballot. Put on the ballot by the California State Legislature, Proposition 16 would repeal Proposition 209 (1996), allowing for race, ethnicity, sex, nationality and color to be factors in public employment, education and contracting decisions. Proposition 16 would not create racial quotas; the U.S. Supreme Court found racial quotas unconstitutional in the Regents of the University of California v. Bakke case (1978).
