Black and brown students are disproportionately pushed out of the public school system and funneled into the criminal justice system. System-involved youth are at particular risk. It is essential for those who support system involved youth to learn about this topic to advocate and support youth and families impacted by this issue.
· Participants will be able to identify at least 2 contributing factors to the school to prison pipeline.
· Participants will be able to identify at least 3 risk factors of involvement in the school to prison pipeline.
· Participants will be able to explain how to have discussions with foster care and juvenile justice involved youth about how school policing impacts them.
