After years of community work and experience in the area he provides insights into how to reallocate resources to truly make a difference in Suoth King County to reduce and prevent the harms of the carceral state with a focus on the school to prisonpipe line. South King County has seen an explosion of Black-POC commnities in the past 10 years as a result of gentrificaton, housing and attempts at safe harbor fortheir families. The increase in Black-POC families is significant, however the economic growth, mediant incomes and support resources neccesary to support these families have fallen short. In the wake of limited resources there has been a larger increase per capita of young black and brown children in the criminal justice systems than OSPI and the school districts. Listen to this compelling dialogue about the Prison Industrial Complex (PIC), School to Prison Pipeline (SPP) as a part of the harm done in the Carceral State.
