WCC; 3019 Classroom

The right’s obsession with CRT, bathrooms, and school vouchers has made it clear that destroying public education is a top political priority, particularly in the South, where the greatest number of BIPOC students live and go to school. Join Harry Chiu, JD ’22, Lynn Walker Huntley Social Justice Fellow at Southern Poverty Law Center and the Southern Education Foundation, and his co-advocate Alex Ames, organizing director of the Georgie Youth Justice Coalition, for a conversation on strategies for protecting public schools in the conservative South and why doing so is essential for racial and economic justice.  RSVP for lunch.

Co-hosted by APALSA, Advocates for Education, the Youth Advocacy and Policy Lab, the Trauma and Learning Policy Initiative, and the Education Law Clinic
