What do YOU want to tell the Mayor about Investing in Schools, Not Police?
Share your thoughts in our brief survey here

Restorative Justice is not a trendy new buzzword or a policy mandate from above. It is a reflective, cultural shift that takes years for schools to fully integrate. Let's invest in our public schools by respecting their choices for how to best shift school climate. What if the mayor's budget allocated $20 million to school site staffing, youth and parent leadership, as well as professional development and coordination? We demand that the mayor's budget do this right and kickstart something inspiring, something that lasts.
