From innovative community organizing strategies to the real cost of immigrant labor, the Program for Democratic Governance offers a fresh look at American political life, public policy, and current affairs.
The ACLU of Oregon and the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics are this event featuring Jeffery Robinson. Based on guidance from public health experts, we feel that it is in the best interest of everyone for the organizers to reschedule these events for a later date. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the cancellation.
Featuring Jeffery Robinson, Deputy Legal Director of the ACLU and director of the ACLU's Trone Center for Justice and Equality, which houses the organization's work on criminal justice, racial justice, and reform issues.
For more than three decades, attorney Jeffery Robinson has devoted his career to racial justice. In recent years, he has traveled the country speaking hard truths about race in America. Weaving heartbreak, humor, passion, and rage, Robinson takes us through this stolen history, showing how the legacy of slavery impacts every aspect of our society.
Sponsored by the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics's Program for Democratic Governance and the ACLU of Oregon. This event is being held in partnership with Community Alliance of Lane County (CALC), National Lawyers Guild, UO Chapter, Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) Springfield-Eugene, UO Black Women of Achievement, UO Department of Indigenous, Race, and Ethnic Studies, UO Mixed Student Union, and UO Undergraduate Legal Studies Program.
The event is free and open to the public, but please register so we can make sure to accommodate everybody who wants to attend.
