Take Action!
We must ensure that our students, particularly girls of color, have access to safe and supportive schools.

Did you know that Black girls are arrested at 4 times the rate of white girls? Instead of affirming their right to learn in a safe space, too often school environments have police officers on site and perpetuate the criminalization of young people of color and youth with marginalized identities who are more vulnerable to arrest and overly punitive discipline practices. In response, we need less police and more trauma-informed mental health professionals in school.  

Take action today: Tell your Member of Congress to support the Counseling Not Criminalization in Schools Act, to keep students in school and meaningfully supported with trauma-informed mental health support!
