NC HEAT joined with community members to march against the school to prison pipeline! Youth from over 4 different high schools came together to talk about suspensions, high-stake testing, and SRO’s in schools.
The march left from Washington GT Magnet Elementary School and ended at central prison. Chants of “EDUCATION NOT INCARCERATION” and “When education is under attack what do we do STAND UP FIGHT BACK!” echoed through the streets.
The event ended with a speak out in front of the prison hearing testimony and spoken word from students, parents, and community members.
The event also received some great press coverage which is below!
