NYU and LDF: Immigration, Equal Protection, and the Promise of Racial Justice The Legacy of Jean v. Nelson
Immigration, Equal Protection, and the Promise of Racial Justice has been rescheduled as a virtual convening to be held online Thursday October 22, and Friday October 23, 2020. This two-day virtual conference will be accessible through Zoom and details will be circulated to registered participants in the days prior to the conference.
The year 2020 marks the 35th anniversary of Justice Thurgood Marshall's groundbreaking dissent in Jean v. Nelson, wherein Justice Marshall called for equal protection to apply to Haitian immigrants, and to prohibit the government from discriminating on the basis of race or national origin.
The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. and the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at NYU School of Law are pleased to present a virtual conference exploring the intersection of immigration and racial justice.
