ADDRESSING THE SCHOOL-TO-PRISON PIPELINE

LINKS TO JUSTICE

The Black Legal Action Centre (BLAC) is leading a province-wide research and advocacy initiative on anti-Black racism and oppression in our educational and justice systems.

WHAT IS THE SCHOOL-TO-PRISON PIPELINE?

Through disciplinary policies and practices, teachers and administrators criminalize children, and push students out of schools, and into direct contact with law enforcement and the criminal justice system.

WHAT IS OUR OBJECTIVE?

Over the next 18 months, the Black Legal Action Centre will connect with Black communities across Ontario to better understand their experiences and to advocate for meaningful change within our justice and educational systems.

This project is funded through the Government of Canada.
