NOC is building a movement for Education Justice that is committed to fighting for the community's vision for a healthy, safe & positive school climate. We are committed to redefining safety to prioritize the needs of students, parents, and educators rather than antiquated punitive disciplinary practices that criminalize our students and fuel the school-to-prison pipeline. We want to hear from students, parents, and educators about their visions for a healthy, safe, and positive school climate and discuss next steps on how to achieve it. Food and childcare provided.
Join us for a visioning meeting about safety beyond policing.
It is clearer and clearer every day that our current "public safety" system is simply not keeping us safe. With every death we mourn -- Philando Castile, Jamar Clark, Korryn Gaines, Tyre King, Terence Crutcher, Keith Lamont Scott -- we know that it is time to envision and publicly fund radical alternatives to safety beyond policing.
Alternative models already used throughout the country point toward the need to prioritize youth engagement, mental health, and jobs and employment. Join us to learn about existing alternative models in other parts of the country and to begin the conversation about what safety beyond policing can look like in our community.
Food and childcare provided.
