Youth Civil Rights Conference

Each year, the Keith Center welcomes nearly 100 urban and suburban high school students to campus for a daylong conference on how race and community impact civil rights. The conference increases students’ awareness of what school and community life look like for their peers and uses this awareness as a framework for building community across metro Detroit. Wayne Law students and volunteers from community-based organizations lead the day’s workshops.

Training the next generation of lawyers, advocates and leaders

We will create and advance knowledge, prepare a diverse student body to thrive, and positively impact local and global communities.
