Civil Disobedience, Democracy and Structural Racism:
What's Federalism Got to Do with It?
Part of the Examining Structural Racism segment of the UB Law in Focus Discussion Series
Protests, marches and demonstrations–signature acts of a democracy–have exploded in areas around the country. Demonstrators call for a reassessment of law enforcement methods and redirecting of resources. What does federalism demand as the response to these acts of peaceful and not peaceful protests?
Our panel of UB Law faculty–Prof. Matthew Lindsay, Prof. Robert Knowles, and Prof. Odeana Neal–will consider the distinct yet overlapping areas of local, state and federal governments' relationship to historical and present-day structural racism. Our moderator will be Veryl Pow, a clinical teaching fellow at UB Law.
