The NAACP Legal Defense Fund and the UNC Center for Civil Rights are hosting a two-part conference this summer and fall designed to engage the nation's leading civil rights and racial justice advocates.

The NAACP LDF in June will explore the continued barriers to equality and opportunity for people of color and identify strategies to address implicit bias in civil rights law and policy and continued injustices in criminal adjudication and incarceration.

The Center for Civil Rights' Conference in September will focus on the 2012 Supreme Court term, namely the anticipated Fisher v. Texas and Shelby County opinions, to develop strategies for sustained legal advocacy to move the civil rights agenda forward. Discussions will include current challenges to equal protection, voting rights, housing, and other anti-discrimination laws.
