October 3rd through October 11th the National Dignity in Schools Campaign (DSC) is hosting our 6th Annual National Week of Action Against School Pushout, "Invest in Public Education Not Prison Cultivation!" DSC members and allies will hold rallies, marches, forums and workshops across the country to raise awareness about school discipline issues and to support local campaigns working to transform policies and practices.

Coleman Advocates will be co-sponsoring a regional convening of organizations, agencies and school districts, with our Bay Area Dignity in Schools Chapter partners, as part of the DSC Week of Action. More information on this event in a future e-newsletter.
