Dear YGB Community,
With a 16:1 arrest disparity, we know that cops in schools are just another way for the criminal justice system to put Black bodies into jails. This monumental waste of our tax dollars instills fear in our kids, disproportionately arrests and suspends children of color, and enforces the school-to-prison pipeline.
Tomorrow night (Wednesday) at 5pm, we will join Freedom Inc. to demand #NoCopsInSchools! At that time, the Madison School Board’s Education Resource Officer (ERO) Ad Hoc Committee will hold a meeting, and we need to make it heard loud and clear that we need our schools to be demilitarized!
The meeting will be held at the Doyle Administration Building (545 W Dayton St), and it is vital that we show up and show out to demand Community Control Over the Police and #NoCopsInSchools!
