Upcoming conference: 'Education not incarceration'

By the Notebook on Mar 13, 2003 12:00 AM

The Black Radical Congress will hold its third annual "Education Not Incarceration" conference on May 17.

The conference will bring together youth, parents, educators, advocates, and organizers to learn and strategize about the state of the public schools and the prison system. This year's conference will have a special focus on how schools and jails are affected by the "war on terrorism" and a possible war in Iraq.

Conference topics will include: zero tolerance policies and alternative approaches to school discipline; military recruitment in the schools during times of war; health care access in the jails; voting rights for ex-convicts; and how war spending will affect the quality of children's lives.

"This conference aims to offer participants models of success for quality education and humane justice," says Amadee Braxton, an organizer of the event.

The conference will take place at the American Friends Service Committee at 1501 Cherry Street. There is no cost to attend. Registration deadline is May 12. For more information, contact Amadee Braxton at 215-546-0996 or
