Structural Racism & Youth Violence
Event Date and Time: Wednesday, March 1, 2017 - 4:00pm to 6:00pmLocation: Atrium, Stamp Student Union
This symposium brings together two leading experts to discuss the impact of structural racism and youth violence. The speakers will examine how youth experiences of violence limit potential development, increase disadvantages in already marginalized communities and contribute to the increasing criminalization of young people based on race. Both speakers will also talk about the future research needs in the field and alternative policy solutions.
