In the months preceding the 2020 Presidential Election, the Mediation Program at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies convened a panel of students to offer advice on how the next President of the United States might effectively address racial injustice in the nation. The insights they offer illustrate the pressing needs of Black and Indigenous communities after a presidency that increased already mounting political tensions and spurred racial violence to all-time highs.
