The convening will include multiple faculty and student panel discussions concerning racism, immigration policies, and citizenship in a global environment where so much attention is being paid to citizenship, marginalization, and one's "documentation" status. The conference will also feature a conversation between Jason Carter, Chair of The Carter Center, and Noel King, host of Morning Edition and Up First Correspondent, Planet Money National Public Radio, on immigration and human rights.

A reception with light hors d'oeuvres will be held at Penn Pavilion from 4:15 pm - 6:00 pm including a formal reading and book signing with Jean Beaman.
