Join Annika Leonard as we examine the impact of the school to prison pipeline and work to deepen our understanding of the experiences and needs of youth impacted by zero tolerance policies. In our time together we will be asked to recall what we needed when we were younger. Examine the lived experiences of youth in the school to prison pipeline and explore what preventionist across the country are doing to support youth in their healing process.
