As foes of racial preferences collect signatures for a proposed constitutional amendment, affirmative action supporters are lining up women’s groups to help defeat the measure.
Leaders of the drive to put the issue on the 2006 ballot say they are confident they will get the required 318,000 valid signatures.
They expect to turn in the petitions in January; they would not say how many signatures they have gathered so far.
