This year’s program featured diverse panels ranging from contemporary topics on policing, activism, and Covid19 to ongoing social justice-related issues, all of which embrace the conference theme of “Reclaiming Justice.”

On Thursday, June 3, Dr. Madhavi Venkatesan and nine students (Noah Alper, Alexis Baker, Stephen Bernard, Paolo Lichtenthal, Katherine Murphy, Jacklyn Peterson, Rayana Radueva, and Anthea Simon) discussed their paper “Race and Crime: Beyond Policing” at the opening panel of the annual Justice Studies Association meeting.
