Community Rights Campaign
Structural Proposals to End the School-to-Prison Pipeline in the Los Angeles Unified School District and to Build a National Movement to Stop the Mass Incarceration of Black and Latino Communities that analyzes the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and the Los Angeles School Police Department's (LASPD) citation and arrest patterns for the school years of 2011-2013 through the lens of race, gender, age and neighborhood impacts.
The Labor/Community Strategy Center's Community Rights Campaign had the privilege to engage in a two-day political retreat with the Black Organizer's Project of Oakland to assess the state of the black community, the impacts of our organizing in the community.
We see education as a tool towards transforming, healing, and empowering our communities. S.Y.O.A. is a 6 week intense program of the Labor Community Strategy Center that includes political education, on the ground organizing, and skills that foster leadership development.
