Civil Rights Day: Contemporary Struggles for Obama’s Second Term Comments

Hofstra University Center for Civic Engagement presents Civil Rights Day: Contemporary Struggles for Obama’s Second Term. Now that the elections are behind us, what are some of the major civil rights issues that need to be addressed during the next four years of Barack Obama's presidency? From the movement for immigrant rights to the defense of voter rights in communities of color, from marriage equality to the controversies surrounding "stop-and-frisk" profiling, today's civil rights agenda is broader than it’s ever been. The day will consist of panels, workshops and screenings that address major civil rights issues.

Civil Rights Day will take place on February 27, 2013 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. at various sites, North and South Campuses.
