Session 1: Saturday, June 2nd: 10:00 - 11:50am
Description/Abstract of your Event:
The call for "Education, Not Incarceration: Fight the Police State" was taken up in 2000 by the Southern Anti-Racism Network in collaboration with activists in the Black Radical Congress in North Carolina. Over more than 15 years, exclusionary discipline or out-of-school suspensions has mushroomed into mass juvenile incarceration. Presenters will tell of organizing efforts North and South to plug the school-to-prison pipeline, fight for education equity and an end to academic genocide in the public school system.
