Disrupting The School To Prison Pipeline
Genesis Youth Leaders seek a justice system that emphasizes fairness, rehabilitation, the strengthening of community and the ending of structural racism and economic injustice. As we work together to transform the justice system, we will emphasize care, not fear. We will build partnerships, equity and unity, not exclusion, hatred and division. We will ensure youth are squarely in the middle of policy and practice decisions to create effective and transformative justice systems.
The Genesis Disrupt the Pipeline task force is organized around the belief that youth should be at the center of this issue, as they are affected by these policies more than adults and that youth should not be incarcerated.
