Giving Compass’ Take:
• A video at The Aspen Institute engages viewers in the ongoing conversation about how the United States continues to criminalize Black girls in schools.
• What sort of systematic methods are used to criminalize Black girls? How can you create awareness towards and engage others in the conversation about the criminalization of Black girls?
• Learn more about how Black women and girls are undervalued and disregarded in the United States.
The Criminal Justice Reform Initiative at The Aspen Institute invites you to join an interactive digital conversation on the judicial, societal, and educational disparities faced by Black girls and other girls of color.
I want to be able to bring this narrative — this understanding — of what is occurring in the lives of Black girls to as many people as possible. This book, Pushout, was meant to inform educators, policymakers, adults, and girls alike . . . to really engage in a deep inquiry around how we respond better to black girls who are uniquely impacted by the criminal legal system.
