California’s caste-discrimination bill SB 403 passes Judiciary Committee with an 8-0 vote

Protests, petitions, and meetings with lawmakers did not stop the California Senate Judiciary Committee to vote ‘Yes’ to SB 403: Discrimination on the Basis of Caste, which passed the committee with a resounding 8-0 vote on April 25.
