A statement on the Brown and Garner cases from the Rocky Mountain Collective on Race, Place, and Law

The Rocky Mountain Collective on Race, Place, and Law (RPL), formed in 2013, is a group of Colorado legal academics working together to identify and address racial inequities in the U.S. and around the globe. We offer a critical lens on the complex dynamics of power, locality, and law, and their impact on subordinated communities. As scholars rooted in critical legal theory, we recognize the intersectionality of all individuals; through our teaching, scholarship and activism we aim to expose and challenge law’s role in perpetuating inequities based on race, class and gender and other sources of disadvantage. We employ our collective efforts and expertise to effect change and pursue social justice.

Recently, RPL has organized speakers, films, reading groups and other events around an annual theme. In the 2015-2016 academic year, RPL is pleased to be planning a series of events centered on race and “crimmigration,” the intersection of criminal and immigration law. Check back for a schedule soon! To see last year’s series, which centered on our Equal Protection Initiative, visit our EPI page.
