Racially Just Utah in collaboration with the ACLU of Utah, Salt Lake Peer Court, the Social Justice Student Initiative at S.J. Quinney Law School, and other community partners bring you this event. We hosted the first Train-The-Trainer Symposium on the School-to-Prison Pipeline (STPP) in 2016. This symposium is geared towards parents, students, advocates, administrators, educators, and community members interested in dismantling the STPP, a trend that impacts our most vulnerable youth by pushing them out of school into the criminal justice system.
