About the Teleconference

The policing and criminalization of students, particularly students of color with disabilities, serves as one of the largest contributors to the expansion of our prison systems. Understanding how race and disability are implicated in classrooms, leading to school suspensions, expulsions, and time away from learning is critical to disrupting the school to prison trajectory.
