The Montgomery County Board of Education and County Council both held hearings during the first week of March to hear from the public about the future of police in schools. Nearly 90 activists from the Montgomery County Defund Policing and Invest in Communities Coalition gathered for watch parties for the hearings to support the dozens of students, educators, administrators, parents, experts, and community members who testified in favor of removing police officers from schools.
Read on for more information about what happened at the hearings and how you can contact the County Council and the Board of Education and take action on this critical issue!
