In some states, policymakers have answered the call for greater school safety with proposals that make schools look more like prisons than places for learning; students who face race and sex discrimination are doubly impacted by such policy and program changes. Too often, the voices and needs of girls of color are absent from the conversation. In this workshop, you will learn how you can promote a safe, healthy and inclusive school for all students by centering on the needs of girls of color—from small decisions like how to enforce dress codes in their classrooms to bigger actions like civic engagement on harassment and discipline policies.
