- Affilia‘s editorial board members will prepare brief remarks on the following topics: 1) Participatory research with Black girls to address systemic inequality, 2) The psychological and emotional violence of discrimination experienced by racialized immigrants, 3) Historical scholarship on gender and US immigration policy, 4) Scope of Feminist evaluation research and measurement with smaller non-profitprograms, and 5) Policy analysis of the production of deportability and gender-based violence for immigrants with precarious status.
