Visions of Racial Justice and Childhood: Inequalities, Identities, Politics, Relationalities and Representations is a multidisciplinary conference to be held in-person in Camden, NJ, USA, from June 6 to June 8, 2024. This conference invites presentations that consider how different social actors and entities, including (but not limited to) governments, corporations, nongovernmental organizations, and activist groups, have envisioned racial justice in relation to childhood and youth.
