Join us for, “School to Prison Pipeline: The ABC’s of the prison superhighway,” with the director of the National ACLU Racial Justice Program, Dennis Parker.
07.11.07 | wednesday | 12:00 p.m.
Max Wohl Civil Liberties Center
4506 Chester Avenue, Cleveland

Parker will discuss the alarming practice of pushing children and teens out of the classroom and into the criminal justice system.

Did you know that:

school violence has dropped by half since 1992, but school based arrests continue to soar?
“zero-tolerance” policies have criminalized disruptive behavior for children as young as six years old?
children of color and children with disabilities are more likely to end up in correctional facilities?
This program is part of the Brown Bag Lecture Series, happening Wednesdays throughout the summer from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. at the Max Wohl Civil Liberties Center, 4506 Chester Avenue, Cleveland.

This event is free and open to the public. Participants are invited to bring their lunches; drinks and desserts will be provided. To RSVP, click on the button above or call (216) 472-2220.
