ACS New York: Practical Equality: A Conversation with Robert Tsai & Dahlia Lithwick

NYU School of Law, New York, NY

Join the NYU School of Law Student Chapter and the New York Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society for a discussion with Professor Robert Tsai and Dahlia Lithwick. The conversation will focus on Professor Tsai's new book, Practical Equality: Forging Justice in a Divided Nation, which reviews the history of legal measures to fight injustice and lays a groundwork for our efforts to build a more perfect union today. The discussion will examine 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 supression.
