October 8
6 to 8:30 pm
Village Leadership Academy, 1001 W. Roosevelt Road
Parking is available

As part of the National Week of Action against School Pushout (10/4-11), Project NIA is partnering with Free Street Theater to present a simulation of the school-to-prison pipeline. Free Street youth are creating a series of vignettes that tell a story of the forces that combine to push students out of school.  Through this interactive experience, participants will understand the dynamics of the school-to-prison pipeline and will be invited to share ideas about how to interrupt it.

Space is very limited and only those who officially register through Eventbrite and bring their ticket will be admitted. Register HERE.

This event is made possible through a small grant by the Dignity in Schools Campaign.

For any questions, email projectnia@hotmail.com
