Our staff would like to thank all of our sponsors for their donations and contributions in supporting our ongoing work: The FAMILY GENERATED ANTI-VIOLENCE INITIATIVE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE WALK/RALLY and our WEEK OF ACTION AGAINST SCHOOL PUSHOUT…
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and is a crime that unevenly or disproportionately impacts women and children. Additionally, Nollie Jenkins Family Center (NJFC) program of work against the PREVENTION OF SCHOOLHOUSE 2 JAILHOUSE is lifted up through our membership with the National Dignity in Schools Campaign (DSC), a coalition working to dismantle the SCHOOL TO PRISON PIPELINE. These events happen annually and this year’s theme against school pushout: EDUCATION IS A HUMAN RIGHT, WE WILL NOT GIVE UP THE FIGHT.
Our Youth Leaders hosted a Teach-In/Play that educated students on their rights; while empowering all participants to make change.
