Call on your policy-makers to remove police from schools!
Members and allies of the Dignity in Schools Campaign from around the country will hold actions in support of these five demands:
#1 Shift funding from school police to counselors, peace builders and positive discipline.
#2 Fund and use transformative and restorative justice, mediation and positive interventions.
#3 Stop arresting and pushing out students of color, LGBTQ youth, students that are homeless, and students with disabilities at higher rates. (Black students are pushed out at the highest rates nationally.)
#4 Make sure states and districts focus on school climate under the new federal law - the Every Student Succeeds Act.
#5 End paddling and physical punishment in all schools.
