Last week, our AmeriCorps members spent the day deepening their understanding of the educational landscape. Part of the day included a panel discussion on the school to prison pipeline with Steve Soboroff (LA Police Commission), Dr. Robert Whitman (Dir. LAUSD Office of Public School Choice), Edgar Garcia (Chief Strategy Officer, Office of LAUSD Board Member Monica Garcia), and Mary Mouring (6th grade partner-teacher, 99th St. ES). This event is one of the many ways we strive to comprehend the social justice issues the communities we serve face. 

Check out our pick for Storyteller of the Week, and come back every week as we share our favorite moments from our schools and communities.
