RAISE YOUR HAND uses an orchestra to makes some noise against the school-to-prison-pipeline.

The school-to-prison-pipeline is the increasingly widespread trend of pushing children of color out of schools and into the penal and criminal justice systems. RAISE YOUR HAND will feature a side-by-side orchestra of student musicians performing alongside professional musicians; include guest speakers discussing topics within educational justice; and feature an immersive exhibit on the school-to-prison pipeline curated by the Museum of Impact.
