THE STORY:

SOUTHERN ANTI-RACISM NETWORK wrote -

The Southern Anti-Racism Network (SARN) began the "Education, Not Incarceration!" campaign in Durham, North Carolina in 2000. The connection between academic achievement and out-of-school suspension was clear. Absences from school lead to students being retained. Retentions lead to dropouts. A child who turns sixteen and is still in the 8th grade is a likely candidate for dropout. Racial disparity and poverty have been identified as the systemic factors contributing to the school-to-prison pipeline. In Durham Public Schools in 2000 one black male student had been suspended 27 times in a single year. When that fact was pointed out to the Superintendent, she responded, "Obviously, that intervention is not working." She proceeded to establish the "Superintendent's Task Force for Closing the Achievement Gap" in recognition that "schools can not do it alone." The struggle continues to engage parents and community members in efforts to close the achievement gap and reduce out-of-school suspensions.

SARN initiated "Building a Village" in Columbus GA in 2011 to engage the whole community (businesses, churches, community groups, students and parents) in a collaborative strategy to build the village it takes to advance education equity. An intergenerational organizing committee of students and parents is the core component of the "Building a Village" project to engage people most affected by the school-to-prison pipeline.

Please give $10, $25, $50, $100 to support community organizing efforts in Durham NC and Columbus GA. Your donation will help provide training and incentives for low-income parents and students.

The equivalent of 50 people giving $100 each will reach our goal of $5,000. SARN is committed for the long haul.

 Please donate today. Thanks in advance for your support.
