Beginning Spring semester 2023, the Civil Rights & Restorative Justice (CRRJ) Action Research Lab at WashU will work with the award-winning CRRJ Clinic at Northeastern University Law School and other local and regional initiatives to research and redress histories and legacies of racial violence and repression in Missouri. The WU-CRRJ Action Research Lab at WashU is co-led by WashU faculty members and long time CRRJ research collaborators David Cunningham (Sociology) and Geoff Ward (AFAS).
WashU undergraduate and graduate student participants in the lab will help investigate and redress racially-motivated homicides in Missouri (1930-1954) in support of case investigations and restorative justice efforts led by teams of law students in the CRRJ Clinic at Northeastern University Law School. Lab members will receive directed study credits and compensation for travel and time they spend undertaking field research in communities across Missouri.
