Pursuit of Justice Conference

The Pursuit of Justice: Understanding Hatred, Confronting Intolerance, Eliminating Inequality Conference. This conference brings together the leading interdisciplinary academic forum on hate and directly related social problems with the combined social justice leadership of the Gonzaga Law School and the Washington Task Force on Race and the Criminal Justice System. This pairing provides opportunities to align interests in understanding and addressing fear and ignorance of the “other” with interests in how these conditions manifest in hatred, intolerance, and inequality. People who are interested in presenting at or attending the conference can go to http://www.law.gonzaga.edu/Centers-Programs/task_force_on_race/pursuit-of-justice-conference/. The deadline for submitting a paper to present is December 1, 2012. The conference is April 18-20, 2013.

contributed by Jim Mohr, Chair of Advisory Board, Gonzaga Institute for Hate Studies

About nwchr

The Northwest Coalition for Human Rights (NWCHR) exists to facilitate connections and communication among organizations and individuals who are engaged in human rights and social justice work in the Northwest region of the United States, with special focus on the Inland Northwest. The coalition, inspired by Bill Wassmuth's former Northwest Coalition Against Malicious Harassment, will give strength to those working at the local level by allowing them to share resources, information, and ideas, as well as making them part of a larger support system. The University of Idaho Office of Human Rights, Access, and Inclusion (HRAI) in Moscow serves as the administrative home for the NWCHR, and the Coalition strives to build strong membership from throughout Idaho and eastern Washington, as well as from other parts of the Northwest region. All are welcome to join NWCHR and give their input.
