Supporting Police-Free Schools in Alexandria

Today LAJC sent a letter to the Alexandria (Va) City Council in support of student demands for a police-free Alexandria City Public School system. Youth advocates at our longtime partner organization, Tenants and Workers United, have petitioned the City Council for a budget amendment that would divest nearly $800,000 from Alexandria’s School Resource Officer (SRO) program and invest those dollars into student and community mental health supports. For more information on LAJC’s advocacy on school policing, visit our school policing page.
