The Gault Center and the Georgetown Juvenile Justice Clinic & Initiative invite you to the 2022 Racial Justice Training Series.

In this session, Prof. Kristin Henning and Ebony Howard, Deputy Director of The Gault Center, will be joined by Harold Jordan, Nationwide Education Equity Coordinator at the ACLU of Pennsylvania; Reyna Rollolazo, Community Engagement and Anti-Racism Director at TeamChild; and Amir Whitaker, Senior Policy Counsel at ACLU of Southern California and Founder and Director of Project KnuckleHead.

Please join us to:
* Learn about the intersections of race, disabilities, and school discipline
* Review the historic evolution of police in schools
* Discuss disparate school discipline and school-based arrests in your jurisdiction
* Consider how we can use data, research, and history in our case advocacy and systemic reform

This session will be built around Chapter 6, Cops in School, of Prof. Henning's book, The Rage of Innocence: How America Criminalizes Black Youth.

Participants will:
* Develop concrete and actionable strategies to use data, research, and history in individual client representation, policy advocacy, and systemic reform;
* Learn about the most recent data and research on the topic;
* Have an opportunity to submit questions in advance;
* Share local obstacles and potential solutions during the session;
* Receive handouts, including sample motions, pleadings, and updated annotated bibliographies.

While The Rage of Innocence focuses on Black youth, these sessions will also focus on advocacy for Latinx, Indigenous, Native American, and other youth of color.
