We must continue to push for the investment in youth of color and the divestment from the police. As Black and Southeast Asian youth leaders, we want equitable, caring, loving and safe schools.
We demand:
1) The complete removal of cops from schools
2) Invest in youth of color
3) Let students and parents have control over school safety
4) Use restorative and transformative justice instead of punitive punishment
