Policy issues related to immigration, education, human and civil rights, the criminal justice system, labor, war, and economics are hotly debated topics of the 2016 election campaigns. The impact of policies around these issues on this country's populace shed further light on the need for conversations on race, gender, socio-economic status, religion, and other markers of identity. As part of this Claremont Discourse series on the presidential election, this panel will address identity politics tied to the election and the impact of both campaign rhetoric and the potential outcome of the election on various communities within this country, including but not limited to Latino, African-American, Asian-American, immigrant, LGBTQ, and Muslim communities.

Co-sponsored by the Dean's Action Committee for Diversity and Inclusivity (DACDI) at the Claremont Colleges Library.
