Panel discussion on 'Intersectionality in Judicial Systems: Claiming Your Space'
by Green & Gold News |
In the MARCHing to Justice Series, Native Student Services is highlighting several strong BIPOC women over the course of February and March. We are hoping to highlight not just historical context but to engage the community in discussions around issues BIPOC people face and how we navigate our systems. Our hope is that these panels will spark further discussion, and lead to more panels and community-based events. We need these discussions right now so critically. Our students are really struggling after almost a full year in COVID. We are hoping that these events will be hopeful, strength-based, and authentic. We want to have difficult conversations but in productive ways that lead to action items.
Please join Superior Court Judge Una Gandbhir, District Court Judge Kari McCrea, District Court Judge Jo-Ann Chung, and moderator Theresa Lyons as they discuss how to hold space in places that may not have been "built" for BIPOC women by discussing their paths to the bench.
When: Feb. 26, 2021 from 1–3 p.m.
