Join us for our Open House this March!
We are delighted to announce the grand opening of the expanded Center for Latino Policy Research with our month-long Open House titled Arts in Our Community: Latinx Visions for Social Justice (from February 27th to March 30th 2017) featuring many visionary artists in our community.
Juana Alicia’s exhibit of prints, paintings and sculpture, entitled Poetic Justice/Justicia Poética, will be displayed for six weeks, with an opening reception on Friday March 3rd. The Open House will also include a workshop with Melanie Cervantes and Jesus Barraza of Dignidad Rebelde on March 8th, an artist talk with Juana Alicia on March 10th, and a film screening with emmy award winning filmmaker Ray Telles on March 23rd.
We invite campus and the public at large to connect with our vibrant new center for intellectual and cultural work on issues most central to the Latinx community.
For nearly twenty years, the UC Berkeley Center for Latino Policy Research (CLPR) has played a central role in advancing knowledge about the demographic changes within California society and the patterns of inequality Latinos face across numerous domains and geographical locations. CLPR scholars engage in collaborative work with a broad set of institutions (non-profit, governmental, and private) to produce research and policy that can leverage the complexity of the Latino experience in the United States and to shed light on the myriad factors that affect the distribution of material, social, and political opportunities. We accomplish our mission through our commitment to community-engaged research projects that work to inform local, state, national, and international policies that affect Latinos.
CLPR is part of the Institute for the Study of Societal Issues
