Press

Students & community members share stories of alleged racial profiling by N. Chas. Police Dept.  Girls Rock Charleston organizers and teens showed up to this event to resist police brutality in our community and talk solutions with our friends and neighbors. Our fierce & fearless Teen Leader Karla shared her story of abuse at the hands of SROs at R.B. Stall High School in front of more than 100 people. We condemn reporter Matt Alba for suggesting, during his interview with Karla, that she “asked for” the multiple bruises and scratches that she received during her arrest. There’s no excuse for the institutional violence against and criminalization of Black and brown youth.

North Charleston residents talk aggressive policing, racial profiling at town hall meeting. Girls Rock Charleston organizers and teens showed up to this event to resist police brutality in our community and talk solutions with our friends and neighbors.

School district questions punitive practices for students. Check out the amazing work that the Charleston Area Justice Ministry is doing to eliminate school-based arrests and implement restorative justice in Charleston County schools! We are excited to be working alongside them to make our schools safer and more welcoming for all students.

Many thanks to the Fund for Southern Communities for supporting GRASP this year!
