System-wide violence in US communities is the twin of US aggressive wars abroad. MLK taught that the antiracist and the antiwar movements must go arm in arm. Three eloquent speakers—each on the frontlines of local movements for racial, immigrant and worker justice—will share their perspectives and reveal the relevance of MLK’s insight today.
Sponsored by the Beyond War and Militarism Committee a joint project of the CNY Solidarity Coalition and the Syracuse Peace Council

Urban schools are experiencing increasing numbers of students from immigrant & refugee backgrounds. Students of color, those with disabilities, and English language learners are all at an increased risk in relation to the school-to-prison pipeline. Academically these students are also at a disadvantage because of low teacher expectations, ability tracking, educational barriers, segregated educational placements, and anti-immigrant bias. This panel presentation will explore how schools can better support immigrant, refugee, & asylum seeking youth & their families.
