Our member Nollie Jenkins Family Center will be hosting a Teach-In today from 11:00am – 2:00pm at 417 N. Lexington Street in Durant, Mississippi. Students, parents, elected and public officials, and child-servicing agencies in Holmes County will learn about the experiences of Black girls and their increasing rate of incarceration, dropout, and alternative school placement because of zero-tolerance policies that disproportionately push them out of school.
