The Project

Challenge the collateral consequences of school expulsions in Berkeley and Oakland through holistic individual advocacy and local policy reform.

Each year, hundreds of black and Latino students in Alameda County are referred for expulsion. Even if they are not ultimately expelled, a mere expulsion referral ignites a number of consequences that set youth on a dangerous trajectory. Through direct representation and local policy advocacy, this project works to protect the education and due process rights of students facing expulsion.
