Design and Civil Rights
Design has played a crucial role in groundbreaking struggles for civil rights in the US, from the struggle for women's right to vote to fights for racial equality, marriage equality, and access for people with disabilities. Designers have illuminated these struggles. They have engaged the public and helped overturn oppressive policies and create new ones. No historic fight for justice in the US is perfect or guaranteed. Now more than ever, designers raise awareness, unify communities, and make noise around seeking justice for all.
Optional catered box lunch by Stevens & Stevens Deli is an additional $10 (turkey sandwich, veggie sandwich, or grilled chicken caesar salad). Drinks provided.
