Stopping the #AssaultAt: Strategies to Remove Police from Schools

Saturday June 16, 1:00 PM to 2:20 PM – Lecture Hall

Categories: School Policing, Political Education

The #AssaultAtSpringValley exposed the raw, state-sanctioned violence by police against Black and Brown students in their schools that went unnoticed and unchallenged. It ignited new possibilities for student action and illuminated emergent strategies in youth organizing. Since the #AssaultAtSpringValley in October 2015, there have been over 30 other documented assaults (recorded and reported by students themselves) as well as over 20 youth organizing campaigns calling for police out of schools. In this workshop, we will to learn how to build transformative, youth-led and intergenerational campaigns that defund, demilitarize and dismantle school police.
