EDJ is here to mobilize youth activists across Memphis to stop the school-to-prison pipeline.
The 'school-to-prison pipeline' [is] a disturbing national trend wherein children are funneled out of public schools and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems.
Youth Action Network
This year, the Education & Youth Justice (EDJ) Cohort is continuing to grow the Youth Action Network (YAN). YAN is made up of students from all across Memphis who are uniting to provide support and access to different resources and opportunities for all youth. We will soon be recruiting a team of “contributors” who will be trained to send out text alerts, update the YAN website, and ultimately become owners of the platform. Check out the YAN website at www.youthactionmemphis.com !
