school boardOn Tuesday, April 22nd, NC HEAT students mobilized to the Wake County School Board meeting to reiterate their demand for community inclusion in the process of revising the memorandum of understanding between the school system and Wake County police departments. Youth spoke in support of passing the budget proposal that would increase pay for school system employees and include a line-item for a restorative justice pilot program. NC HEAT will be meeting with the school board Chair next Monday, to communicate their concerns and have a dialogue about how students and their communities can have a meaningful and leadership role in the development of a new MOU. We will keep raising our hands and our voices until we win schools that are safe and supportive of all students!
