Event Details

Program and additional event information available on the BCRW website.

Education. Healthcare. Policing. The environment. The primary facets of public life are often segmented into separate issues. While powerful social movements have developed around each of these topics, many structural forces cut across such tidy (and false) boundaries and create ripples far beyond any one agency, nonprofit, or area of study. Crafting a society built on shared dreams and responsibilities that truly addresses injustice and incorporates diverse perspectives demands a wider lens. This day-long conference, the culmination of two multi-year multidisciplinary projects—For the Public Good and Gender, Justice, and Neoliberalism—brings together writers, activists, and scholars to reflect on approaches to reshaping our social infrastructure to support us all.

Keynote address by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Event is free and open to the public. Registration is requested. Venue is wheelchair accessible.
