I March For Black Girls & The Black Women Who Marched Before Me

LAUSD sent School Police, a faction of LAPD, to “randomly” search students for weapons and drugs. While it seems the intent was to keep schools safe, police officers often targeted and criminalized Black, brown, and Muslim students. The main schools with the heaviest police presence were schools majority made up of those demographics. However, even at my highly privileged school with a prominent white and Asian population, the Black, brown, and Muslim students still faced the heaviest consequences.
