Racism has been the blueprint and the foundation of the United States since its inception. Over centuries of struggle, the United States has been pushed to evolve on this issue and in many ways the Bay Area has led the charge to provide progressive models of social and legal equity and inclusion. Nevertheless, white supremacy continues to operate in the Bay Area both covertly and increasingly, overtly.

Now, the Berkeley Journal of African American Law and Policy, Asian American Law Journal, La Raza Law Journal, and Journal of Middle Eastern and Islamic Law have come together to co-sponsor a joint symposium entitled United Against White Supremacy.
