Race, Inequality and Social Justice
June 21 - 26, 2020
The Race, Inequality and Social Justice program will address a score of issues that have plagued the United States since its founding. The systemic racism that has built a legacy of racial injustice will be studied through case study, statistical analysis, and through first-person accounts. During this immersive experience, you will explore the key issues that challenge America today.
During this program you will:
- Attend classroom lectures and discussions that highlight racial disparities in issues ranging from housing access, to foster care placement, to access to higher education.
- Present on the range of organizations – local to national, small to large – that seek to bring change to the country and recognize these important issues.
- Engage with the Brandeis tradition of academic and artistic achievement, robust debate, diversity and justice.
- Discussion topics ranging from access to education, housing, and healthcare, to foster care placement, to wage gaps, to activism and the path to equity.
- Study in a program that reveres learning and rigorous academic work of the highest standards.
