Featured Keynote: “Dog Whistle Politics: Past, Present, and ’22” with Ian Haney Lopez (William H. Neukom Fellows Research Chair in Diversity and Law; Chief Justice Earl Warren Professor of Public Law, University of California, Berkeley)
Ian Haney López teaches in the areas of race and constitutional law, and is one of the nation’s leading thinkers on how racism has evolved since the civil rights era. His current research emphasizes the connection between racial divisions in society, and growing wealth inequality in the United States. In Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism and Wrecked the Middle Class (2014), Haney López details the fifty-year history of how politicians exploit racial pandering to fracture social solidarity and ultimately convince voters to support rule by the rich. Join us to learn more about how the political manipulation of coded racism has evolved, and how an evidence-based approach to neutralizing political racism can build cross-racial solidarity.
