The Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, along with several UCSB campus departments and divisions, has partnered with UCSB Arts & Lectures to host Race to Justice, an event series for the 2020-2021 season.
Race to Justice features hour-long virtual events with leading activists, creatives and thinkers to expand our understanding of racism and how race impacts society, and to inspire an expansive approach to advancing racial equality. As a nation, we are confronting evidence of inequality that reaches every corner of society. Race to Justice is an in-depth look at systemic racism from every angle, including abolition, underlying conditions, reparations, criminal justice and more. Interdisciplinary and cross-departmental, this season-long series engages leading activists, creatives and thinkers to expand our understanding of racism and how race impacts society, and to inspire an expansive approach to advancing racial equality.
