Description

Keynote Speaker-Workshops-Training-Privilege Walk-Lunch

Join Save Girls on F.Y.E.R., in partnership with RACCE, in uplifting youth voice. Take part in a youth-led day of learning and community building as the future young educated role models lead an interactive forum to raise awareness and facilitate meaningful dialogue on the School-To-Prison Pipeline.

Over the last year, our youth advocates have worked with local, state, and national organizations discovering, exploring and defining solutions for the school-to-prison pipeline here in Waterbury. In Waterbury Black and Hispanic girls are suspended at much greater rates than their white counterparts. This overuse and misuse of school suspensions divert students of color from classrooms to jails at much greater rates than we can ever imagine. We have banded together to push back against school push out. We are demanding the school system align itself with the goal of prosperity, not imprisonment. This event is designed by Waterbury students, will be facilitated by Waterbury students, and students 12-20 yrs old are invited to attend (parents and educators are welcome).
