County Councilmember Will Jawando co-hosts a movie screening of “On These Grounds” at the Silver Spring Civic Center Monday from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.
“A video goes viral, showing a white police officer in South Carolina pull a Black teenager from her school desk and throw her across the floor. Healer-Activist Vivian Anderson uproots her life in New York City to move to South Carolina to support the girl and dismantle the system behind the assault at Spring Valley,” the film synopsis reads.
Jawando will hold a discussion with students, the county’s Chief of Teaching, Learning and Schools, Ruschelle Rueben, and the Executive Director of Restorative Justice Partnership, Dwanna Nicole, about policing in schools after the screening.
Reservations can be made here.
Join us TONIGHT for a screening of “On These Grounds” and a panel discussion with students, MCPS professionals, and other experts about the realities and alternatives to policing in schools.
