Washburn Law Celebrates Juneteenth With Launch of New Racial Justice Repository

Washburn University School of Law is pleased to launch its Racial Justice Repository to celebrate Juneteenth on June 19, 2020. The Repository is designed to help you discover resources for learning more about the social construct of race and its intersection with law. Currently the Repository includes the Anti-Racist Resolution adopted by the Washburn Law faculty on June 8, 2020; racial justice reading recommended by the faculty; other readings related to racial justice; and an extensive bibliography of anti-racist resources compiled by alumna Angel Zimmerman, '06. Special thanks to Angel and to all alumni who sent resources to include in the Repository.

The Repository also highlights the Dominique T. White Scholarship for Racial Justice. This scholarship will support a student who seeks to do work promoting racial justice after graduation. Washburn Law joins many law schools across the country in naming a scholarship for a Black person whose life was ended by police action in the city or state where the law school is located. Your donation will support this scholarship and other social justice work at Washburn Law.
