Houston is admired for being one of the most diverse cities in America, but it is still one of the most segregated.

May 18: Transforming Relationships and Institutions through Youth-Led Restorative Justice

Anita Wadhwa explores the current climate that has resulted in the disproportionality of school discipline of students of color in order to understand its domino effects: expulsion, dropping out, and incarceration. Together with some of her students, she shows restorative justice responses that work to derail the reliance on punitive discipline as well as creating environments where all students can achieve success.
