This workshop will provide an overview of some of the educational and legal policies that have had a devastating and disproportionate impact on low income communities of color and led to higher occurrences of functional illiteracy, suspension and expulsion rates, drop out and force out rates and subsequent incarceration. It will review some educational and legal policy changes that occurred in the Age of Obama and begin to brainstorm possible shifts that might occur under a Trump administration. It will ultimately develop actionable steps for collaborating across sector in order to support and be allies toward low income students of color who are struggling to achieve educational and career goals over the next four years and beyond.
