Join THIRTEEN for an intersectional conversation about justice in the United States. We will explore whether justice is likely in the face of legislative barriers, challenge traditional notions of what is possible in American politics, and learn how democracy can be made stronger by those most marginalized. The event will include highlights from the recent PBS films Asian Americans and And She Could Be Next.
Our guests include Ángel Díaz, Counsel, Brennan Center for Justice; director and producer Grace Lee; and Vice Chairman of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Board of Directors Karen Boykin-Towns. The event will be moderated by MetroFocus host Jenna Flanagan.
