Dismantling the School To Prison Pipeline

Dismantling the School To Prison Pipeline Symposium Series
100 Stories in 100 Days
sponsored by
ACET, ACLU of Georgia, Georgia State Conference NAACP, Gwinnett STOPP, and
Interfaith Children’s Movement

Through a series of five regional forums, a strategic plan for statewide action to dismantle the School
To Prison Pipeline (STPP) will be developed. Stories obtained through this symposium from
stakeholders; students, parents, education community, legal community, elected representatives,
civic community, and faith community groups will form the foundation of the plan that will improve
the educational environment for Georgia’s students. The statewide plan will include communitybased
solutions as well as proven local and national strategies for change.
Georgia has taken important steps to change the climate in our public schools by banning solitary
confinement, recognizing the need for change, involving the community and focusing on educational
excellence. But we have so much more work to be done! That work will require students, parent,
community members and organizations coming together for a better Georgia!
We need to hear from you. Share the successes and challenges of your child and your school system.
Join us at the regional STPP forum for your Congressional District. Registration is $10 and includes
lunch. Venue details will be provided upon registration.
