One event on March 20, 2021 at 11:00 am
The UNC School of Law’s 26th Annual Conference on Race, Class, Gender, and Ethnicity (CRCGE), “Immigration: A Global Humanitarian Crisis” considers the effects of state and national law on the lives of immigrants, as well as conditions leading to migration.
Topics that will be examined at the Conference include the effects of immigration laws on LGBTQ asylum seekers and domestic abuse survivors, the effects of climate change on global migration, and the expansion of executive power as it pertains to immigration.
The CRCGE was founded in 1996 by a group of students at the UNC School of Law. It was designed as an academic forum where recent political and legal developments could be examined through critical legal and social justice perspectives. This Conference is an annual event, held in the spring, drawing scholars and activists from across the state and nation to address a topic chosen by the organization.
The North Carolina Civil Rights Law Review and a coalition of student groups at UNC Law and have worked together to host the Conference. This year’s student groups are the National Lawyers Guild, the Immigration Law Association, the Environmental Law Project, the American Constitution Society, Law Students Against Sexual and Domestic Violence, and Lambda Legal.
