We came to Learn: Defining School Safety for Black and Brown Students
August 27th, 2019
10:00 am – 12:00 pm ET
Eaton Hotel – Crystal Room (1201 K St NW, Washington, DC 20005)
On August 27, you are invited to join Advancement Project National Office (AP) and Alliance for Educational Justice (AEJ) for an exclusive walk-through and the launch of the organizations’ new microsite, which tracks and details all documented police violence against students of color since 2009.
Following the release of their co-authored We Came to Learn report, and at the height of Back to School season, AP and AEJ are creating a space to provide political education around the history of school policing and offer viable solutions. This event will include:
- Engaging and thought-provoking conversation geared toward defining school safety for Black and Brown students,
- Presentations from organizations working toward #PoliceFreeSchools,
- Opportunities for press to connect with and uplift the voices of youth of color to better understand their asks and needs regarding their safety in schools,
- An immersive digital experience that emulates the experiences of youth of color in their places of learning.
Light refreshments will be served. For more information on the event and to RSVP, visit: https://wecametolearn.eventbrite.com
We hope to see you there!
