The impact of excessive discipline in classrooms is long-ranging and deep, especially for students and communities of color. This panel will consider how school policies, the presence of police officers/school resource officers, and white supremacy has led to high and disproportionate rates of suspensions, arrests, and referrals of Black and Brown youth to the legal system.

An offering from the Frederick Douglass Institute Collaborative.

Biases and stereotypes can affect policing and how law enforcement agencies carry out their duties. But officers and other members of law enforcement are not the only ones who have bias/stereotypes. What role do the biases and stereotypes we hold about law enforcement play in the interactions between citizens and officers? This town hall will help us confront stereotypes and biases that undermine interactions between law enforcement and citizens. 

An offering from the Frederick Douglass Institute Collaborative. Further information through the FDI
