Call in to speak with the host
On March 22, the United States Department of Justice announced an historic settlement with the school district of Meridian, Mississippi, that seeks to end the disproportionate exclusion of black children from school for disciplinary infractions and the arrest of black students for minor offenses.
Our guests, Ryan Wilson and Zoe Savitsky, are the Department of Justice trial attorneys (and my former colleagues) who investigated complaints of discriminatory student discipline in the district, litigated the case before the court, and negotiated the terms of the incredibly comprehensive agreement with the school district. They will talk to us about the terms of the agreement and explain what this means for Meridian students and students all over the nation.
Host, Allison R. Brown, is a civil rights attorney and owner of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC).
It's good to talk.
