Dignity in Schools Statements on Ferguson + Eric Garner Decisions


"This is not a public safety issue or a question of police and youth not 'understanding' each other. This is a human rights issue and we must push for a radical transformation in the way America treats young people, train youth on what to do when they are stopped by law enforcement and block police access to youth as much as possible from our schools to our streets, stated Kim McGill of YJC in Los Angeles."

"This injustice is part of a larger context of systemic oppression and continued criminalization of people of color by law enforcement. We stand in solidarity with communities who continue to raise their voices to end the militarization of police departments, including those operating in our schools."

Join Teachers Unite
"Because of the support I get at Teachers Unite, I am able to be a better teacher. Through TU I am reminded that my work in the classroom is directly linked to my work outside the classroom, and ultimately, that my students and I are in this struggle together to make school more relevant & just."  
-Kate Rubenstein, TU Organizing Council member
