The Project

My project will focus on dismantling Wake County’s school-to-prison pipeline. Grounded in a community lawyering philosophy, I will: 1) provide holistic legal advice and representation for students from low-income families in school discipline-related cases; 2) draft community education publications; 3) conduct presentations, workshops, and trainings for students, parents, advocates, services providers, educators, and policymakers; and 4) create a community-based diversion program as an alternative to suspensions and court referrals.
