Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality


At the Korematsu Center, we advance justice and equality through research, advocacy, and education. We seek to combat discrimination, help communities advocate for themselves, and train the next generation of social justice advocates. Also housed within the Korematsu Center are The Defender Initiative and the Homeless Rights Advocacy Project.

In response to the current crisis over the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Breonna Tayler and countless others that has brought renewed attention to systemic discrimination in the criminal justice system, the Center has taken on a leadership role in launching Task Force 2.0, that picks up from the earlier Task Force on Race and the Criminal Justice System.
