Hello beautiful community!
Please join us at our general meeting on the Prison Industrial Complex hosted by REACH! and SASC. Currently California has the highest prison budget, spending $47,102 per inmate compared to $8,482 per student and 3 out of 4 inmates being people of color.
We will be discussing the reasons for these alarmingly high rates which include institutional barriers and the school to prison pipeline as well as the current IGNITE campaign (Invest in Graduations, Not Incarceration, Transform Education), SEAPOP (Southeast Asian Prison Outreach Project), and various ways you can be involved in spreading awareness.
Guest Speakers TBA.
Location: Dwinelle 243
