Calmore Conference Reception

Each year the UNC Center for Civil Rights hosts a national conference as well as a number of student forums and community education and outreach activities.

Its conferences focus on challenges that align with its legal and strategy agenda and other prevalent civil rights issues. Past convenings have concentrated on public school resegregation, the municipal exclusion of non-white communities, the consequences of redistricting reform on minority voters and high-poverty schooling in America. These events unite the nation's leading experts and advocates to exchange research findings, action strategies and other ideas and provide a forum for community leaders, attorneys, scholars and policymakers to build networks for change.

In addition to its national conference, throughout the year the Center hosts a public interest speaker series, participates in Continuing Legal Education (CLE) and community education events, and works with the UNC School of Law Pro Bono program to coordinate community outreach activities and legal projects for students.
