Doree: Freedom, Justice, Power Summit

This month, I was able to broaden my racial equity work at School’s Out Washington by presenting at Franklin High School’s “Freedom, Justice, Power Summit.” Fellow VISTA Bruce McGregor and I facilitated two workshops concerning the school-to-prison pipeline and the ways social justice ties into problems in school discipline. We put on brave faces to be in front of 30 teenagers with great results. It was great having such an open platform for students to have a dialogue and discuss solutions to such a pressing problem.
