Connect with EJS

We get closer every day to achieving a society where race is no longer a barrier to opportunity. By working at the intersection of the law, social science, and race, we develop legal strategies to restore our constitutional protections against discrimination. EJS collaborates with social scientists and legal scholars to put forth legal arguments regarding implicit bias and structural racism. The arts also play an important role in our work in our efforts to share stories of justice with new audiences. Learn more about us.

We would like to keep in touch with you as we make progress in our efforts.
