About Us

Associate Dean Deborah Archer organized the Racial Justice Project in the fall of 2006. The goal was to create a legal advocacy initiative to protect the constitutional and civil rights of people who have been denied those rights on the basis of race and to increase public awareness of racism and racial injustice in the areas of education, employment, political participation, and criminal justice. Since then, the Project has worked to achieve these goals through the efforts of a growing number of faculty and student participants.
