Professor Wenger has presented his work at a variety of events, including as an invited panelist at the Annual Legislative Conference of the Congressional Black Caucus in both 2008 and 2010. He was the Lead Faculty Organizer of the 2010 Women and Law Conference at Thomas Jefferson School of Law, which focused on “Women of Color and Intersectionality” and was held in conjunction with UCLA School of Law’s Fourth Annual Critical Race Studies Symposium.
