HLS Advocates for Education Conference
Closing the School to Prison Pipeline:  Redirecting our Future

Welcome to the First Annual Advocates for Education Conference!  We believe the school-to-prison pipeline is one of the most pressing issues in education, and in child advocacy in general. We will take a multidisciplinary approach to discussing this complex problem and exploring potential solutions.

Professor James Forman Jr. of Yale Law School will be the keynote speaker.

Other panelists include The Honorable Jay Blitzman, Middlesex Juvenile Court; Dr. Frank DiCataldo,   Roger Williams University; Mark Fancher, Racial Justice Project of the Michigan ACLU; Alana Greer, Advancement Project; Dr. Tim Lisante, New York City Department of Education;Daniel Losen, UCLA Civil Rights Project; Dr. Laura McNeal, Charles Hamilton Houston Institute; Dr. Jennifer Murphy, Massachusetts General Hospital's Children and the Law Program; Lisa Thurau, Strategies for Youth;  Alice Wolf, Massachusetts State Representative; Dr. Maisha Winn, Emory University; and more!

The conference includes lunch with panelists and plenty of opportunities to interact with our speakers.
