Hi Friends and Allies!
As you all know, in solidarity with many of you, FFLIC has been fighting to end the School to Prison Pipeline for several years on a local, state, and national level. FFLIC staff and members have journeyed to Washington, D.C., with the Dignity in Schools Campaign on many occasions to educate our congress men and women on the issues of school pushout and the need for effective alternatives. Here is your chance to impact the school to prison pipeline on a national level. On Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 2:00pm the Senate Committee on the Judiciary has scheduled a hearing of the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights entitled “Ending the School-to-Prison Pipeline” and we are urging you to LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD BY:
Writing a letter of support for alternatives to school pushout, share a personal story, or write about whatever you feel would help our movement to end school pushout! Please see the attached letter for a sample template and for more information on where you should email your letter.
Attending the hearing in Washington, D.C.; Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 2:00pm.
For more information or if you need assistance submitting a letter feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We Need Solutions Not Suspension! Far too many of our citizens are impacted by the school to prison pipeline. Louisiana incarcerates more people per capita than any other state in the union.
In the struggle,
