It’s pretty simple: Kids need care, not cops. Black and brown youth are targeted and criminalized by cops in their daily life – they shouldn’t be harassed at school too. Tell the Board of Ed: Take all police out of Buffalo schools, immediately!
During COVID one of the only way elected officials hear from their representatives are by phone, email and social media, so this is how city legislatures hear from YOU what matters to YOU
I’m calling to ask you to vote to remove all police from the Buffalo Public Schools. Black and brown children are antagonized and harassed by the police in our community, and school should be a safe place away from cops. Our children are not criminals and they should never be treated like they are. Instead I’m asking you to support restorative justice practices and mental health programs to help kids resolve conflict, and end the school-to-prison pipeline. Can I count on you to vote to remove police from our schools?
Then, share and tag 3 friends to do the same!
@Buffalo_Schools Systemic racism looks like giving white students counselors, second chances and support, and black students cops, arrests and suspensions. Remove police from BPS immediately!
