Racial Justice Community Conversations Panel Discussion

Race & Law: The Capitol Insurrection v. Black Lives Matter Protests

Our goal is to facilitate a high level panel discussion about the stark difference in the treatment of Black Lives Matter protests throughout the summer of 2020, and the capitol riots of January 6th, 2021. Our panelists will discuss and unpack how during many BLM protests there was a heavy police presence, while during the capitol riots there was a tremendous lack of police and also actual active duty law enforcement that participated in the riots. Also, our panelists will discuss the differences between peaceful lawful assembly, looting, and rioting, and how the media has influenced how peaceful demonstrations have been misconstrued at times.

In June 2020, the Trump Administration announced a new sanctions regime against International Criminal Court officials on national security law grounds; in September 2020, the Administration designated for sanctions two high-level ICC officials, including Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda. The sanctions regime has been challenged in U.S. federal court by two different lawsuits, in New York and in California. In addition, the sanctions regime has provoked a sharp rebuke by the ICC itself, as well as by several other countries, international organizations, and NGOs. This panel discussion will focus on the sanctions regime which the Trump Administration imposed against ICC officials, as well as against those who provide material assistance to the court. Panelists will discuss the ongoing litigation brought against the Trump Administration on First and Fifth Amendment grounds in two different federal circuits. Panelists will also analyze both constitutional as well as international law and policy issues that are implicated by the current sanctions regime.
