Public Event on Racial Profiling: From the Classroom to the Street
2229 South Halsted Street
Chicago, IL 60608
This educational after-school event brings together a diverse group of CPS students, Chicago youth leaders, social justice organizations, CPS teachers, and other educators. This event will allow youth and educators to discuss how the events outside of school can and should shape teaching and discipline policies in schools. The event will provide some specific teaching tools that educators can use to continue the discussion/activism in schools and connect students and educators to existing social justice organizations, campaigns, and activism taking place in Chicago that is part of the larger new 21st century youth movement.
Youth from schools are encouraged to bring their teachers and teachers are encouraged to bring youth from their schools in the hope that groups pursue ongoing activity and activism both in school-through ideas like service learning projects, lessons and extracurricular activites-as well as outside of school. Individual teachers and students are also welcome to attend and participate.
