Breaking The Silence Philly: A Town Hall Hearing On Girls of Color (12/12)

PLEASE JOIN US FOR A TOWN HALL HEARING ON THE CHALLENGES FACING GIRLS OF COLOR IN PHILADELPHIA
 

Saturday December 12th
12-4 PM EST
Caplan Hall, University of the Arts

WHY ARE GIRLS AND WOMEN OF COLOR….

DISCONNECTED from family & community?

CRIMINALIZED and INCARCERATED
Disproportionately for subjective, non-violent
infractions?

HARMED by trauma, malnutrition, housing
discrimination, and a lack of access to services?

INVISIBILIZED in the narrative surrounding
the school-to-prison pipeline and state violence? 

What can be done about it? Join us in breaking the silence!
