Awakening Our Democracy: Policing Bodies, Borders, and Rights

Join us as we bring the AWAKENING OUR DEMOCRACY series to Columbia Law! At this roundtable discussion, we will explore pressing issues threatening our democracy today—tying questions of race, citizenship, gender, disability, religion, and intersectional vulnerabilities to law, policy, and activism.

A delicious dinner will be served! And don't forget during the event to TWEET your thoughts to: #AwakeningOurDemocracy and @AAPolicyForum
