Michigan Civil Rights Commission to Meet Monday, November 24 in Kalamazoo ACLU of Michigan to Present on School-to-Prison Pipeline

The Michigan Civil Rights Commission will host a regular public meeting from 2:30 to 4:30 pm on Monday, November 24 at the Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership on the campus of Kalamazoo College, 205 Monroe in Kalamazoo, 49006.

Mark Fancher, Racial Justice Project Attorney with the ACLU of Michigan, will present on the 'school-to-prison pipeline', the disturbing national trend of children - especially at risk children - moving directly from the classroom into the criminal justice system, and the policies and practices that contribute to the problem.

Individuals who wish to address the Commission on civil rights issues will have an opportunity to speak during the public comment period at the end of the meeting.

The meeting location is accessible and ample parking is available nearby. If you want to attend and need accommodations to do so, please contact Shawn Sanford at 517-373-8787 by Thursday, November 20.
