25th Anniversary Celebration Webinar Series:
How to Stop the School-to-Prison Pipeline for Girls of Color
Wednesday, January 11 at 2:00pm EST
Black girls and other girls of color disproportionately experience harsher school discipline than their peers. According to the most recent data released by the US Department of Education, Black girls are suspended six times more often than white girls. Punitive, rather than restorative, approaches to conflict often push Black girls out of school and into the juvenile justice system. Advocates, educators, and policymakers alike are looking for solutions to address school climate and safety with an intersectional racial and gender lens.
Join us for an exclusive webinar — part of our 25th Anniversary Celebration — as we discuss promising solutions with author and social justice scholar Dr. Monique Morris. Dr. Morris will highlight policy and system change strategies to address the issues she highlights in her groundbreaking book Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools (The New Press, 2016). She will be joined by her colleague Aishatu Yusuf to discuss the important work and research she and Dr. Morris have engaged in.
The discussion will be moderated by Maisie Chin, Director of the grassroots parent group CADRE in Los Angeles and a Schott Foundation Board member.
Aishatu Yusuf has worked with federal, state and local governments to conduct program development projects, social science research, evaluation, and policy analysis to address issues that permeate the juvenile and criminal legal system. With the belief that change must be envisioned through an intersectional lens that captures race and gender identity, Aishatu has worked on reducing the barriers for formally incarcerated women, evaluating the strengths and needs of girls in gangs, and is currently working on participatory research that addresses interrupting school-to-confinement pathways for girls. She holds a Master’s of Public Administration with an emphasis on social policy from Northeastern University.
Maisie Chin is Co-Founder and current Director of CADRE – Community Asset Development Re-defining Education, an independent, grassroots parent membership organization in South Los Angeles comprised of low-income African American and Latino parents/caregivers. CADRE’s mission is to solidify and advance parent leadership to ensure that all children are rightfully educated regardless of where they live. Through human rights-based community organizing and policy advocacy, CADRE parent leaders are fighting to end the pushout of low-income families of color from public schools and the school-to-prison pipeline.
Ms. Chin holds a Master's of Arts in Urban Planning – Community Development from the University of California, Los Angeles. Ms. Chin is a Board member of the Schott Foundation for Public Education.
