Getting in Touch


The African American Policy Forum is hosted as part of the Center for Intersectionality and Social Policy Studies (CISPS) at Columbia Law School. 

Established in 2011, the Center for Intersectionality and Social Policy Studies at Columbia Law School will serve as a global focal point for the development, articulation, and application of intersectionality as both a theoretical framework and a cogent practice in law, human rights, and social justice advocacy.

The first such center of its kind, its research projects and initiatives will bring together scholars and practitioners from law, sociology, feminist and gender studies, human rights, social justice, and other fields to explore the relationship of intersectionality to their work, to shape more effective remedies, and to promote greater collaboration between and across social movements.

As an interdisciplinary hub, the center will partner on projects with the African American Policy Forum, a think tank housed at Columbia Law School, as well as with a variety of other centers and institutes both within the Law School and across the University.
