What is the School to Prison Pipeline?

May 8, 2021

Join the EBDSA political education committee and EBDSA racial solidarity committee in the second in our “What is Abolition?” series as we explore the school-to-prison pipeline. We’ll be hearing from Ben “Coach” Tapscott, an OUSD School board candidate, endorsed by EBDSA, and Gerald Smith, an activist with the Oscar Grant Committee, who’s worked with the family of OUSD students Raheim Brown who was shot by OUSD PD. Check out the readings below and join us to discuss and explore what the school-to-prison pipeline is and how we can fight it.
