Peace Without Police is our multi-year campaign to expel school resource officers and police from schools, and invest in creating care and community for students over criminalization. Wherever gun violence terrorizes our communities, March For Our Lives is committed to confronting it and fighting to end it. That fight includes the fight to get cops off campus. Police are no less brutal in our schools and universities than they are in society at large, and have no place in educational settings. Young people need care, not cops, and it’s going to take a people powered movement to get there.
This issue is expansive! There’s the school-to-prison pipeline, the history of racism in education, and big ideas like abolition. That’s why we’ve created programs to help guide you in this journey, and ultimately make you a better organizer, advocate, and activist.
