The Center on Race, Sexuality & Culture at Berkeley Law will examine contemporary questions of identity and discrimination through the lens of intersectionality. Intersectionality considers how race, gender, and sexual orientation (among other identities and systems) overlap to produce distinct experiences of vulnerability and resilience.

Critical Race Theory and the 2020 Election
3:00 PM to 4:30 PM PST

This roundtable discussion will consider how the racial uprising in the aftermath of the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, on-going police violence and social unrest, a possible shift in race-consciousness among White voters, and the selection of Kamala Harris as the Democratic vice-presidential candidate may impact the election and our democracy
more broadly. In addition, the panelists will engage President Trump’s attempt to “cancel” Critical Race Theory and anti-racism initiatives.
