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 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)
New scholarly analyses of present and proposed policy changes.
Event Bringing Civil Rights Research to Bear on Voucher Programs: Are the Promises Realized? (Dirksen Senate Office Building Room SD-G50, from Mar 05, 2018 09:30 AM to Mar 05, 2018 11:30 AM)
There have been important efforts to expand school vouchers, and a variety of tax subsidies at the state and federal level, based on pledges to equalize opportunity and strengthen schooling for excluded groups. At this event, important new data and original research will assess these claims and provide guidelines for policy development that protect the rights of low-income students and students of color. Research findings will look at the civil rights implications of voucher programs and ask: do vouchers actually expand opportunity or undermine it?
