In Los Angeles and elsewhere, black and brown communities face multiple forms of banishment and exploitation. At this event, convened by the Institute on Inequality and Democracy at UCLA Luskin, we share and discuss research and activism to analyze structures of urban displacement, racialized policing, criminal justice debt, forced labor, and the mass supervision and control of youth. But unequal cities are also where freedom dreams are created and enacted. Located in, and thinking from South Los Angeles, we shine a light on organizing frameworks and resistance strategies that challenge exclusion and refuse subordination.
We, the Institute on Inequality and Democracy at UCLA Luskin, invite scholars, students, activists, artists, community-based and nonprofit organizations, foundations, policymakers and public officials, and all those interested in social justice work, to join us. Information on registration and participation will be available in early April. The full program is available HERE.
