The City’s Office of Equity and Human Rights is hosting their second session in a three-part series on the school-to-prison pipeline from 1 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2021. 

Session two digs more deeply into how bias affects discipline in education settings, juvenile justice imbalances, arrests, and even probation and employment. It will be presented by social justice advocate and implicit bias specialist, Thomas Newkirk. Learn more about Thomas Newkirk's work at his website.
