Affirmative Action Cases–The Work Ahead

November 2 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

On October 31, 2022, the United States Supreme Court heard oral argument on the cases challenging affirmative action and race-conscious admissions: SFFA v. University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (UNC) and SFFA v. Harvard. These cases are a reminder that education has always been a battleground for civil rights and it is imperative that we press forward for greater racial equity and inclusion in higher education

Join leading civil rights litigators and advocates from the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Legal Defense Fund, Asian Americans Advancing Justice – AAJC, and African American Policy Forum to discuss the cases’ implications, reflect on lessons from oral argument, and provide a roadmap for how we move forward as a community leading up to and following the decisions. This webinar will serve as a reminder of how far we have come and how far we still need to go in order to reap the educational benefits that flow from multiracial and inclusive learning environments and address the needs of all communities.
