Description

2016 Critical Race Theory Conference at Yale Law School: Race (In)Action

Recent clashes between the police and communities of color have made explicit the continuing salience of race and racial discrimination in America today. The deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, among others, have made people question explicit and implicit racism in systems of policing in this country. As the media, schools, and policy makers begin to explore the systematic oppression of marginalized groups and use critical narratives such as White supremacy, privilege, and implicit bias, to describe causes of current injustices, Critical Race Theorists have the opportunity to collaborate with practitioners to put theory into action.

The 2016 conference will be a day-long event, with two main speeches, several panels and workshops, a lunch break, and opportunities for socializing and networking throughout. All are welcome, including law students, graduate and undergraduate students, aspiring and current academics, practitioners (including clinical faculty, practicing attorneys, and other racial justice advocates), local community members, community organizers, and activists.
