Charlie Halpern will moderate this discussion and share perspectives from his 25 years in public interest law alongside Angela Harris, leading scholar of critical race theory and feminist jurisprudence, and Tirien Steinbach, lecturer at Berkeley Law and Director of the East Bay Community Law Center.
