As a follow-up to the popular breakout session at SCG’s 2014 Annual Conference, join us for a first-hand look at how local philanthropy leaders are incubating an initiative to break the school-to-prison pipeline.

This interactive experience will include a bus tour with visits to a local school and the Barry J. Nidorf Juvenile Hall, as well as a series of short conversations and ample opportunities to debrief and discuss in a private grantmakers-only space.

You will speak with youth leaders, educators, program practitioners, staff organizers, movement leaders, jail staff, and others who are catalyzing change in the region:

  • Scott Budnick, Anti-Recidivism Coalition
  • Patrisse Cullors, Dignity & Justice Now
  • Ange-Marie Hancock, USC
  • Veronica Melvin, President, LA’s Promise
  • D’artagnan Scorza, Social Justice Learning Institute
  • Robert Whitman, Principal, Manual Arts High School

You’ll also have the opportunity to learn from foundation leaders innovating in this space to inform your work, leverage your institution's funding, and share what you're learning from your own work.

With 70% of Californians under 25 being people of color, our future is in color. Significantly more likely to receive suspensions, drop out of high school, and get funneled into the criminal justice system than their white peers, many of these young people don’t see a promising future for themselves.

When one suspension alone doubles the chance of dropping out and triples their chance of getting involved in the justice system, we need to concentrate on keeping kids in school and out of the school-to-prison pipeline.

We hope you’ll be able to join us for this thought-provoking program.
