Your Call: What conversations are youth having about Black Lives Matter?

Feb 11, 2015

  

What do youth think about police in their communities? On the February 11th edition of Your Call, we’ll continue our series on police, community, race, and justice with a discussion on how young people perceive police.  With so much media attention on the use of excessive force by police, the deaths of black and brown men and women, and Black Lives Matter, what conversations are students having in the classroom and at home about these issues? What interactions have they had with law enforcement? What change would they like to see? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
