Margaretta Lin Selected as Inaugural Urban Equity Community Fellow by UC Berkeley's IURD

Under the leadership of Professors Jason Corburn and Malo Hutson, UC Berkeley's Institute for Urban Regional Development has launched a new Urban Equity Community Fellows program to build a movement of activist scholars working for urban equity in the Bay Area, nationally, and around the world.  The Fellows program connects the talents of leading Bay Area racial and social equity practitioners with university resources and community.  Dellums Institute for Social Justice's Principal, Margaretta Lin, has been selected to serve as one of the inaugural Fellows. Her focus will be to convene a national working group of activist scholars, community activists, local government officials, and students to develop a new "public rights paradigm" (working title) that advances the role of government in solving persistent racial and economic inequities facing current residents.
