#AssaultAt Map

The fight for #PoliceFreeSchools sits in a continuum of radical youth and community organizing. Black youth, students of color, students with disabilities, immigrant and LGBTQIA+ youth organizing to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline are part of a long legacy of young people fighting to end the policing of their schools and communities.

School policing places students of color at a significant risk of being attacked, harassed, and assaulted by the same police officers who have oppressed Black and Latinx communities for centuries. This #AssaultAt map chronicles over 300 acts of school police violence against students since 2007, including violence perpetrated by school resource officers (SROs), police officers on school property and at school-related events, and school security guards, as part of the school policing infrastructure.
