United Against White Supremacy Symposium
Friday, February 2, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Racism has been the blueprint and the foundation of the United States since its inception. Over centuries of struggle, the United States has been pushed to evolve on this issue and in many ways the Bay Area has led the charge to provide progressive models of social and legal equity and inclusion. Nevertheless, white supremacy continues to operate in the Bay Area both covertly and increasingly, overtly.
Now, the Berkeley Journal of African American Law and Policy, Asian American Law Journal, La Raza Law Journal, and Journal of Middle Eastern and Islamic Law have come together to co-sponsor a joint symposium entitled United Against White Supremacy.
This symposium will be a space to examine and discuss how white supremacy operates in our daily lives. In particular, the symposium will convene panels addressing gentrification, affirmative action, immigration, and incarceration. These panels will provide forums to develop new ways of thinking and legal strategies to confront and dismantle white supremacy.
Events are wheelchair accessible. For disability-related accommodations, contact the organizer of the event. Advance notice is kindly requested.
