The Michigan Journal of Race & Law welcomes you to our 25th year anniversary symposium, “To Create the World Anew: Movement Lawyering at the Heart of Race & Law.”
From MI Journal of Race and Law: Our symposium seeks to recognize the Journal’s contribution to civil rights scholarship for the last 25 years, while also questioning the greater role of lawyers and the law in social movements. We are examining case studies from Michigan that have required lawyers and non-lawyers to work in unison to bring greater change. Beginning with the fight for the right to water across Michigan, to the response to the family separation crisis, and the legislative and advocacy efforts to end the school to prison pipeline—we believe there are important lessons to be learned right here in our own community. We look forward to you joining us!

“Our challenge, as we enter the third millennium, is to deepen the commonalities and the bonds between these tens of millions, while at the same time continuing to address the issues within our local communities by two-sided struggles that not only say ‘No’ to the existing power structure but also empower our constituencies to embrace the power within each of us to create the world anew.”
– Grace Lee Boggs, “These Are the Times to Grow Our Souls”
