Duke NAACP Spring Engagement: Carmen Perez

Duke NAACP's Spring Engagement has traditionally been Fall Engagement, and it's an event that brings a unique speaker to campus whose work is tied to our mission of bringing awareness to local and national issues surrounding social justice.

This year, our speaker of choice is Carmen Perez, one of

the co-founders of the Women's March on Washington. Carmen currently serves as the Executive Director of The Gathering for Justice, a nonprofit founded by Harry Belafonte. Carmen is the co-founder of Justice League NYC and founder of Justice League CA, two state-based task forces for advancing juvenile and criminal justice reform agenda. A respected expert in the field of juvenile and criminal justice and system accountability, Carmen was invited to testify before the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, was a featured speaker and co-convener of the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March, Justice Or Else, and has been featured in numerous media and TV outlets. Carmen’s most recent work was her role as the National Co-Chair of the Women’s March on Washington.

Carmen will be speaking at Duke Chapel discussing intersectional feminism and the role it plays in juvenile justice and prison reform. ALL ARE WELCOME AND NO TICKETS ARE NEEDED!
