TAKE ACTION TO END THE CRIMINALIZATION OF CONCERNING BEHAVIOR IN SCHOOLS AND TO HELP KIDS GET THE HELP THEY REALLY NEED

Your voice can spur the beginning of the end of the school-to-prison pipeline.

(AB 610) Eliminating Law Enforcement Mandate in Schools Bill Text – SB-1273 School safety: mandatory notifications.

This legislation will protect students from unnecessary contact with the legal system and decrease school related law enforcement referrals and arrests. In addition, school staff will no longer be prosecuted when choosing to not notify law enforcement of various student behaviors. Therefore, schools will be empowered to adopt non-punitive models to effectively support students with more compassion. Passing this legislation is an important step in ending the school-to-prison pipeline in California. Send the email below to let your state legislators know where you stand on this issue!
