As part of our effort to support an infrastructure of collaboration between researchers, lawyers and advocates, we believe in the importance for The Civil Rights Project to conduct conferences, briefings and trainings.

Many of our conferences are envisioned to foster debate and draw experts from several distinct areas, commissioned for further research by The Civil Rights Project.

Upcoming and Recent Events

Event Book Launch & Roundtable for The Walls Around Opportunity: The Failure of Color Blind Policy for Higher Education (Faculty Club, UCLA Campus, from Sep 13, 2022 02:30 PM to Sep 13, 2022 05:00 PM)
Join us on September 13th in person at UCLA or virtually to celebrate the timely book launch of The Walls Around Opportunity: The Failure of Color Blind Policy for Higher Education by Co-director Gary Orfield. For many young people, racial inequality puts them at a disadvantage from early childhood. The Walls around Opportunity argues that colorblind policies have made college inaccessible to a large share of students of color and reveals how policies that acknowledge racial inequalities and set racial equality goals can succeed where colorblindness has failed.
Event Confronting the Equity Issues in Dual Language Immersion Programs (University of California, Los Angeles, from Dec 07, 2018 01:30 PM to Dec 08, 2018 04:00 PM)
The Civil Rights Project and partners held a working meeting for invited participants on Equity in Dual Language Immersion Education in December 2018. Dual language programs, especially two-way, hold enormous promise for English learners as well as others if they are developed and implemented in an equitable way. An ongoing dialogue was organized with the goal to discuss and address concerns about the degree to which all communities are effectively served by these programs.
Event Can Immigrant Students Still Feel Safe at School in the Age of Trump? (UCLA School of Law, Room 1357, from Oct 10, 2018 12:15 PM to Oct 10, 2018 01:30 PM)
How are public schools and teachers being affected by the Trump administration's immigration policies? What can public schools do to protect their students? What can we do to ensure that our schools are safe spaces for all students? This interdisciplinary panel addresses such questions by drawing on two national studies by Professors Patricia Gándara and John Rogers and they will be joined by Michael Newman, California Department of Justice, Civil Rights Enforcement Section, and Thomas Saenz, Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund. The panelists also examine the impact of the Trump administration's policies and political rhetoric on the experience of immigrant youth and the children of immigrant parents in U.S. public schools.
Event Are Current Policy Changes Closing the Door to College for Students of Color? (Dirksen Senate Office Building, Room G11, 120 Constitution Ave NE, Washington, DC 20002, from Sep 25, 2018 10:30 AM to Sep 25, 2018 12:00 PM)
