As the 2008 election drew near, what were the critical legal issues facing minority communities across the United States? How would the lives and needs of these communities influence and be influenced by electoral politics, the 2008 presidential election, and the next administration? What were the key problems and how could we effectively address them as we moved towards the next phase in the nation's political life?
On November 9, 2007, the Berkeley Journal of African-American Law & Policy (BJALP) hosted a symposium focusing on critical legal issues facing minority communities in light of the upcoming 2008 election. Given the current legal, social, and political atmosphere, it was an opportune time to examine those issues that were most salient to minority communities and to begin setting an agenda aimed at effective change and reform.
