Race & Public Policy: A Proactive Agenda for 2005 & Beyond
In the days following the general election, the Applied Research Center will assemble community leaders, academics, policy advocates, and activists to assess where we are and to envision where we need to be to advance proactive racial justice policies.
In addition to workshops and panels, the conference will use a collection of policy case studies to launch our strategic discussions. Case study papers will outline campaigns that produced policy change by using racial justice as a primary framework. Topic areas include public education, race and labor, access to public benefits, immigrant rights, civil rights and liberties, and media policy.
The complete conference workshop schedule is now available.Two days of workshops and plenary panels will feature speakers such as Xochitl Bervera, Families and Friends of Louisiana's Incarcerated Children; Cindy Cho, Korean Immigrant Workers Advocates; Emil Guillermo, Asian Week; and Meizhu Lui, United for a Fair Economy.
