Advocacy in Action Lunch and Learn Series
March 15, 2018
11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Black students are 4-6 times more likely to be suspended than their white peers, funneling many into the prison system and perpetuating the cycle of poverty, low educational attainment and structural inequities that span generations. Daniela Velazquez from the ACLU will share details of their initiative on unequal discipline and ways we can support those efforts and help improve outcomes for minority youth.
We will begin gathering at 11:30 AM. Speakers will begin at noon. Please RSVP to Lisa at 314-993-5181 or email@example.com so that we can be sure to have adequate seating.
