Moving to Higher Ground & Emboldening the Field: Strategic Dismantling of the School to Prison Pipeline

Host Organization: The California Wellness Foundation, Rosenburg Foundation, Akonadi Foundation


Join Lateefah Simon from Akonadi Foundation and strategists of Dignity in Schools Campaign California (DSC CA) to build allies in philanthropy who are willing to invest in movement building leadership to keep California at the forefront ending criminalization in our schools and dismantling the school to prison pipeline. While this work is traditionally viewed as an educational issue, this work is opening critical struggles against policing in schools and communities, and building a new layer of grassroots leaders and movements to confront mass incarceration.
