Meet Community Leaders Who are Reimagining Justice

May 16 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Free for members

Poor youth of color are disproportionately suspended or expelled from school and incarcerated in Santa Barbara County. Once they are system-involved, they tend to stay in the system. Come meet Santa Barbara County organizations working towards social justice equity. Join a discussion featuring Connie Alexander and Audrey Gamble of Gateway Educational Services and Christy Stillwell of SB Teen Legal Clinic to learn about local initiatives to disrupt the school to prison pipeline. We invite you to learn with us, connect with others in the community around this issue and discuss how we can make a difference. Complimentary wine and snacks provided.

Attendees can RSVP here. Thank you.
