What are some of the most pressing topics in civil rights currently confronting the Garden State? Leaders in New Jersey civil rights advocacy weigh in with this rich discussion that will cover subjects making headlines as well as the issues that may not yet have entered the public discourse. Topics to be discussed include voting rights, hate crimes and bias incidents, the rise of white supremacy groups in the state, redlining, sexual harassment, forced labor, challenges to public school curriculum/policy, school segregation and the intersection of technology and civil rights.
