ETHNIC STUDIES BEYOND THE ACADEMY: THEORY AND ACTION AT THE GRASSROOTS @ SFSU
Friday October 9th, ROSA PARKS-C 11:10 AM - 1:00 PM

This interactive panel will explore alternative frames for research to both move organizing campaigns and
influence policymaking. Our speakers include academics, researchers, and community organizers
working to uncover racial disparities and the solutions to close the gap. They will unpack the dominant
frame distorting policy debate and then outline their research, told through their alternative frame. The
panel will also provide opportunities for the audience to participate in framing their own research.
