CEJ Calls For “Sanctuary Schools”

On Thursday, December 8th, CEJ parents held a press conference at the NYC Department of Education to call on the NYC Department of Education to do more to make schools a refuge from racism, sexism, xenophobia and homophobia for students and families. In light of the surge of racist and anti-immigrant harassment and crimes in NYC and nationally, the DOE must take a much more proactive role in equipping school staff to support students who are exposed daily to hateful speech and acts through their own experiences, friends and family, and the media; and families who are being threatened with discriminatory federal policies.
