SWK Day 2015

thanks everyone who attended

Social Work Day 2016 

A Call to Action: Disrupting the (In)Justice of the School to Prison Pipeline

We took a critical look at the juvenile justice system, negative consequences of the application of discipline policies in schools, and the disproportionality of marginalized youth who are impacted by educational and juvenile justice policies. A sincere thank you to everyone who made this day such an incredible success.
