The Justice Center and the ACLU of Alaska presented this free program for the public, followed by a reception. Twenty-one UAA and community partners were also co-sponsors and staffed information tables at the event. Prof. Deb Periman, Justice faculty, and Jeffrey Mittman, Alaska ACLU Director, coordinated this program.
The focus of the program was recent developments in the continuing challenges faced by minority and underprivileged communities, and the work of the ACLU in fighting for equal rights. During the lively q & a segment, Mr. Romero addressed a number of specific cases and topics.
The program was live streamed on the UAA Journalism and Public Communications website
