Police-free Equity in American Education

Police do not belong in schools. First and foremost, our children are students who go to school to learn, and the presence of police officers disrupts that nurturing educational environment. Their presence signals the doors of academic opportunity slamming shut and the unnecessary funneling of students of color into the juvenile and criminal justice system. No one wants this ‘school to prison pipeline’ for their child, and it needs to stop immediately. Policing our schools is the criminalization of the childhood of children of color and part of the more significant issue of American racial disparity.

Freeman Initiative’s Police-free Equity in American Education Program focuses on making quality public education accessible and accountable to the communities served. We work to strengthen public schools that are underfunded or under-resourced, while opposing closures and corporate takeovers of public education. We also work at both the national and local levels with partners, allies, policymakers, and community liaisons, including young people, to scrutinize, expose and reform the practices that lead to the criminalization of students. Become a catalyst for this structural change in public education today by making a donation in support of this program or volunteering at one of the schools in crisis.
