Join ARC on 7/29 for NAACP speaker on policing in our schools

ARC received many comments from you on our recent post about school resource officers (SROs).  


To respond to your interest in this topic, we have arranged for Sujatha Hampton, PhD, of the Fairfax County NAACP, to speak to our group on July 29 at 7:00 pm.  Dr. Hampton chairs the organization’s Education Committee.  The Fairfax County NAACP has called for the removal of SROs from Fairfax County Public Schools in its 2021 Advocacy Agenda (pp. 3-4). Thanks to Mary Paden for connecting us to Dr. Hampton.


If you are interested in further reading, the Justice Policy Institute has done research in this area, and has published a 2020 policy brief on SROs.


Please mark your calendars for July 29 at 7:00 pm. To register for this Zoom event, email arc@mvuc.org.
