New York: 1.0 Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias

The New York City Bar Association invites you to a discussion on the policing of Black girls in schools, the consequences, and achievable equitable remedies. Panelists will explore the historic lens of the treatment of Black girls and how they are viewed by society; the types of punishments and procedures they are subjected to; and the long and short term consequences of being pushed out of school. Also, Karen Aime, a former student of the Brooklyn public school system will share how her school’s preconceived notions of her as a Black girl affected her student experience.
