Practical Equality: A Conversation with Robert Tsai and Dahlia Lithwick

Wednesday, February 27, 2019 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Practical Equality: Forging Justice in a Divided Nation reviews the history of legal measures to fight injustice, and lays a groundwork for our efforts to build a more perfect union today. Prof. Robert Tsai of American University Washington College of Law will discuss his important and timely new book with Dahlia Lithwick, Senior Editor and legal correspondent at Slate. They will review the lessons of past successes and failures to promote equality through the courts and social activism, and discuss what, if any, role the judiciary will play in the overlapping and varying struggles against police brutality, LGBTQ discrimination and voter suppression.
