******The Cases******
The murder of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012, by admitted shooter George Zimmerman has captured national attention, with hundreds of ongoing protests throughout the U.S. demanding justice.  Zimmerman remains free, with investigations mounting by the FBI, Department of Justice, and local officials in Sanford, Florida.

Shaima Alawadi, an Iraqi-American wife and mother of five, died days after being brutally attacked in her own home last month.  A hateful note was found beside her body after she was attacked, stating that she was a terrorist and should go home, leading many to consider her case a hate crime.  The FBI and El Cajon Police department in California are investigating her case.

Critical Mixed Race Studies (CMRS) is the transracial, transdisciplinary, and transnational critical analysis of the institutionalization of social, cultural, and political orders based on dominant conceptions of race.

CMRS addresses local and global systemic injustices rooted in systems of racialization.
