The National Consortium on Racial and Ethnic Fairness in the Courts will host its 2020 Symposium on Racial Equity over the course of two-days, beginning tomorrow from noon until 4 p.m. EDT. The program is free and open to the public and will look at critically important issues in the context of advancing racial equity and equal justice under the law. Tomorrow’s program will include a session on examining barriers to civic engagement for people with a felony, followed by a roundtable on ensuring equal access to justice through the courts. The program will continue on Nov. 13 with sessions on reimagining policing and removing confederate statues from public squares. The program is free, but attendees must register in advance.
