WHY ARE GIRLS AND WOMEN OF COLOR….
DISCONNECTED from family & community?
CRIMINALIZED and INCARCERATED
Disproportionately for subjective, non-violent
HARMED by trauma, malnutrition, housing
discrimination, and a lack of access to services?
INVISIBILIZED in the narrative surrounding
the school-to-prison pipeline and state violence?
