Call to action after Virginia Organizing and other groups make presentations to Lynchburg School Board meeting on February 5

At the Lynchburg School Board on February 5, Virginia Organizing and other groups presented comments about the high rate of school suspensions and the policies that restrict formerly incarcerated people from volunteering in the schools.

Danny Jones, one of the four speakers, said, “As an African-American father, it’s very important to me that I give my son the best opportunity to succeed.” Jones asked the school board to change the policy so that people who have been incarcerated can volunteer in the schools, including going on school field trips with their own children.

Please contact school board members to support these speakers and encourage the school board to take positive actions on these matters!
