Be Her Resource:  A Toolkit About School Resource Officers and Girls of Color

Added Monday, October 02, 2017 by Action Alliance

As the numbers of police in our schools steadily increase, so do the disproportionate rates of discipline against girls of color. In recognition of this reality, Georgetown Law’s Center on Poverty and Inequality and the National Black Women’s Justice Institute conducted focus groups and interviews primarily in the South with girls of color and police officers to gather first-hand information about their interactions. 

Based on this work, this toolkit provides guiding principles and policy recommendations that are designed to improve interactions between girls of color and SROs, with the ultimate goal of reducing these girls’ disproportionate rates of contact with the juvenile justice system.

Our data can be so many things: our locations and travel times tracked by Uber, our search and browsing histories on Google, and the words we use frequently in our Facebook posts. Building Consentful Tech prompts tech creators, such as app and platform developers, to reflect on how they can give users more agency and information on how (and whether) they share their personal data.
