The Project

I represent students of color who are denied equal educational opportunities through discriminatory school discipline and the over-policing of schools. In schools across California, students of color are suspended and expelled at significantly greater rates than their peers, and often are disproportionately targeted by campus police officers. In order to reduce these disparities, I conduct impact litigation and other advocacy efforts that will increase the protections afforded to students subject to discriminatory practices.
