CE Fellows declare "Homework Not Handcuffs!

Lucky

CE's Fellowship students from D.C. high schools are launching their campaign for solutions to the school-to-prison-pipeline!They're tired of seeing (and being) pushed out of school and into the criminal justice system for being low-income youth of color.

The Fellows are advocating for restorative justice programs in all D.C. public schools. Restorative justice programs seek to build stronger relationships between students and their school communities through teacher and staff training and student-led initiatives like peer juries.
One student, Sean (aka "Lucky") documented police officers harassing a student before school one morning. "I took this photo because I saw how the police were harassing the student."
