Join us at Classcrits 8, Univ. of Tenn. Knoxville Law!

We welcome you to join us at Classcrits VIII: Emerging Coalitions: Challenging the Structures of Inequality, October 23–24, 2015, at University of Tennessee Knoxville College of Law. Here is the registration and program. 

This year’s conference takes its inspiration from new alliances that have emerged on the progressive left, sparked in part by the shooting deaths of Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and other young black men by police officers across the country. In one example of these emerging coalitions, retail and fast food workers recently engaged in the “Fight for $15/Lucha Por $15” march wearing “I Can’t Breathe” shirts, chanting, “Hands up, don’t shoot.” The conference will focus on the efforts of various community groups, students, academics, workers, and churches to combat injustice and inequality by forging connections across shared interests and forging robust coalitional praxes.
