Watch Party: Report from the Board of Education’s SRO Working Group

May 11, 2021 | 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Join the MC Defund Policing & Invest In Communities Coalition for a watch party of a presentation by the Board of Education's SRO Working Group. The working group will present its final report on the impact of School Resource Officers (SROs) on Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS). JUFJ and our coalition partners are concerned that their report is very heavily biased in favor of maintaining the status quo, and fails to use reliable research in justifying its outcomes. 

The watch party will begin at 3:30, and we'll start with a short relational activity and review background information on the bill. The working group's presentation will begin at 3:50, at which time we'll use screen share to display information.

No SROs, No CROs Social Media/Call Storm!

May 26, 2021 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Montgomery County
Tell Montgomery County: We Want Police Free Schools! Counselors not cops. No SROs, no CROs.

Last week, the County Council approved the preliminary budget for FY22, which passed with FULL funding for the Community Resource Officer (CRO) program, and ZERO funding for culturally competent social workers. 

This budget, proposed by the County Executive and approved by the County Council, is a complete disappointment to the students, educators, and community members who have been calling for the full removal of police from MCPS for a year now. 

Join JUFJers and other adult allies on the Police Free Schools Campaign to take action together during our Power Hour!
