National Week of Action

Welcome to our 11th Annual National Week of Action Against School Pushout. Our theme this year is Counselors Not Cops: Equity for Youth Now!   Join us as DSC members and allies hold events and actions across the country.



 Each October, members of the Dignity in Schools Campaign (DSC), a national coalition of over 100 organizations, host a series of events, teach-ins, rallies, protests and workshops across the country designed to bring attention to the ongoing and devastating impacts of school policing and zero-tolerance discipline policies. Beginning on Saturday, October 3rd and running through October 11th, DSC’s 11th National Week of Action Against School Pushout will bring students, parents, education advocates, lawyers and many others committed to social and educational justice together to amplify the nationwide call for schools to move away from punitive, cold, criminalizing policies and towards emotionally-safe, restorative and culturally responsive school communities. 

Local grassroots DSC member organizations across the country will also be hosting events in their communities, where virtual and remote learning has only intensified pre-existing structural inequalities. Remote learning environments are actively being hardened and create barriers to learning for many students. The Black, Brown and working-class students who do manage to get online risk being criminalized in their own homes.
