The CRP is celebrating its first quarter century by taking a serious look forward—not at the history of the issues, the debates over older policies, or at celebrating prior victories but at the needs of the next quarter century. The work of civil rights leaders and advocates in recent decades has often been about defending threatened, existing rights. Political leaders often see policy in short two- and four-year election cycles. We need innovative thinking to address the challenges facing our rapidly changing society, so we decided to look further ahead at the upcoming generation. Researchers are uniquely qualified to think systematically, so the Civil Rights Project commissioned a series of studies to harness the skills of several disciplines, think deeply about how our society has changed since the civil rights revolution and project the implications for the future of racial justice. This event is an effort to share this work and promote discussion.
