Event Information

Please join Building Bridges for their annual student-led social justice conference.  This year's title is "Immigration: Demolishing the Legacy of Bigotry in the Land of Opportunity." 

 

The 2019 Building Bridges Conference will be held on Saturday, March 2, beginning at 9 a.m.  This year's conference will explore US immigration history and its impact on today's policies and social climate.  The goal of the day long conference is to address the fact that immigration policy has been used as a tool to legitimize racism, xenophobia, and other acts of bigotry toward those who have been "othered" by American society.  We wish to highlight the lives and stories of the people impacted by this every day, using a social justice lens.  The conference will feature keynote lectures, workshop sessions, and an interactive action piece.  We encourage you to attend and join us as we examine the average US citizen's proximity to instances of systemic violence.  Together we can dismantle the system that legitimizes the criminalization and dehumanization of immigrants and advocate for a just society that promotes the human rights and civil liberties of all people.
