Why do young Black men in the Chicago Public School system get suspended disproportionately at 11 times the expulsion rate of district schools within charter schools? How do racially unjust police practices play out in the school system and what can we do about it?
Join us for a film screening of Fruitvale Station and a “Stop the School to Prison Pipeline” conversation in partnership with Chicago Teachers Union, Teachers for Social Justice, and the Social Justice initative.
Following the film, activists, teachers, students and community members will come together to explore the relationship between budget cuts, school closings and the school to prison pipeline. The discussion will address the disporportionate punishment and policing of African-American students happening thoughout the Chicago school system and what we can do about it.
*Refreshments available during the movie & discussion to follow.
