Lift Us Up: Meet the Activists on the Front Lines of the Battle for Educational Justice in America

DN! looks at the criminalization of black and brown students that has led to what is known as the school-to-prison pipeline. DN! speaks with a roundtable of community activists engaged in the fight to save schools and push for alternatives to punishment and privatization. Their voices are highlighted in a new book titled Lift Us Up, Don’t Push Us Out! Voices from the Front Lines of the Educational Justice Movement.

In Chicago, DN! speaks with Jitu Brown, the national director of the Journey for Justice. In Washington, D.C., DN! speaks with Zakiya Sankara-Jabar, the co-founder of Racial Justice NOW! and field organizer for the Dignity in Schools Campaign. And in New York City, DN! speaks with high school teacher and restorative justice coordinator E.M. Eisen-Markowitz and Mark Warren, co-author of Lift Us Up, Don’t Push Us Out!
