SROs in Schools Lunch and Learn

May 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Free

The EEC, RET, and CIRCC have organized monthly Lunch and Learn on topics that disproportionately impact children and families of color. This month our topic is SROs in Schools. We will be discussing with School Resource Officers the impact they have on students, especially students of color. We will also touch on if the role of SROs in school builds aid in the school to prison pipeline. We hope you can join us and input/grow your knowledge on this controversial topic.

People of Color are disproportionately represented in low-wage jobs that do not provide any kind of benefits. They face many disadvantages, including disparities in family income, health care and access to equal rights that are often exacerbated and perpetuated by unhelpful legislation.

RET, EEC, and CIRCC are united in their goal to dismantle institutional and systemic racism in Washington State by educating and organizing around issues impacting families and children of color as well as the passage of equitable legislation.

Join us on May 15th, 2019 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm for lunch and an informational conversation with experts in the work and community members.

This is a FREE event. RSVP at: https://eec-wa.org/event/sros-in-schools-lunch-learn/

Our Panelist:

  1. Deputy Isaac Araand, Highline School District
  2. SRO Cumming, Renton School District
