There's No Place for Violence Here: Inside America's Schools
Limited Capacity seats available

As headlines about school shootings become a heartbreaking and recurring sight in our newsfeeds, the demand for solutions is growing bigger and louder. But guns aren’t the only type of violence in our schools. Everyday, girls experience sexual violence, bullying, and other types of harm that require swift and significant action in order to make schools safer for all children. Speaking from their experience working at the forefront of this timely issue, these panelists will offer a look inside America’s classrooms and share the interventions we can help to support.

How to Stop the Prison Pipelines for Girls of Color
Limited Capacity filling up

In 2012, Salecia Johnson was arrested at school for doing something most six year olds do: throwing a temper tantrum. At the time, mainstream discussion of the school-to-prison pipeline focused mostly on boys of color, omitting experiences like Salecia’s. But in 2015, a groundbreaking report, Black Girls Matter: Pushed Out, Overpoliced and Underprotected, showed that girls of color are being funneled into the juvenile justice system at disproportionately higher rates. Simultaneously, more than 70% of girls in the system report a history of physical or sexual abuse. Hear from women working to dismantle the school-to-prison and sexual-assault-to-prison pipelines on how to refocus our energy so we’re educating -- not criminalizing -- our students.
