We believe the school-to-prison pipeline is one of the most pressing issues in education and in civil rights. Closing the school to prison pipeline will take a multidisciplinary approach to discussing this complex problem and to exploring potential solutions by asking importanyt questions. What are the most pressing legislative challenges and opportuities to be addressed? How can we build political will in our communities to advance change? What are some positive examples of progress we can highlight? What unique challenges do southern communities face? This track includes the voices of those directly impacted by the system of mass incarceration.

Track leaders will be posted soon.


Tracks are looking for hands-on workshops, strategy sessions, and meet-ups that share stories, skills and best practices. Your session/workshop should be engaging and interactive. Including people who are direct stakeholders or who are directly impacted by the issue strongly aligns with Free Movement's goals of building grassroots power, and should be encompassed as often as possible.

Contact with questions and comments.

Sessions must be accessible to all bodies, genders, and ages by creating a space that is inclusive and welcoming.
