This is a Virtual Event

Join the Center for Racial Justice in welcoming Dr. Angela S. García, immigration scholar and associate professor of Sociology at the University of Chicago, for a virtual workshop on administrative justice. This workshop centers the strategic behavior of both marginalized groups and state actors within a framework of mutual adaptation. Specifically, it will prompt thinking on policy feedback effects and innovation around the alleviation of administrative burden and system avoidance among marginalized groups, alongside the use of administrative justice policy design to foster inclusion and well-being. Dr. Angela S. García is a Center for Racial Justice '23-'24 Visiting Fellow.

This event is the first of the CRJ's winter 2024 Racial Justice in Practice workshop series.
