The Project

The school-to-prison pipeline (STPP) is comprised of the policies and practices that push youth out of school and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. Youth of color are overrepresented at every stage of this pipeline, from school suspension and exclusion to pre-adjudication detention and commitment to the Department of Youth Services. My project aims to disrupt the STPP by reducing court involvement and advancing education of indigent minority youth through direct representation, impact litigation and community organizing.
