Transformative Justice: Opportunities for Advancing Racial Equity

August 28, 2020
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


The movement for racial justice and ending police violence has been building for many years, and we are standing on the shoulders of the hard work people have been doing to build awareness. Washington University is uniquely positioned to study these issues and to apply that knowledge to address them.
This webinar will feature David Cunningham, chair of the sociology department; Hedy Lee, professor of sociology and associate director of the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity & Equity; and Geoff Ward, professor of African and African American studies and associate director of the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity & Equity, in a discussion on police brutality and other forms of racial violence and how the WashU community can work to address these issues in pursuit of transformative justice. They will also discuss their collective research project examining the legacies of racial violence. This event will be moderated by Adrienne Davis, vice provost, William M. Van Cleve professor of law, and director of the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity & Equity.

This event is sponsored by the WashU Engage Chicago Network and the WashU Black Alumni Council.
