This two-day exploratory seminar on the law, social movements, and criminalization of race and ethnicity brought together scholars, theorists, advocates, artists, and activists from across the country to examine the dynamic relationship between the "two I's" of immigation and incarceration and discuss how that relationship works in complex ways to criminalize and/or ostracize people living in predominatly Latino, black, and poor white communities.
