AJE: Upcoming Virtual Lunch and Learns

Tuesday, August 4 - Tuesday, August 25, 2020

Online via Zoom

Sponsored by: Advocates for Justice and Education, Inc.; U.D.C. David A. Clarke School of Law


Advocates for Justice and Education, Inc.(AJE) has 3 Zoom-based Lunch and Learns in August that explore the relationship between Race and Special Education, as well as the connection between Trauma and Special Education. These three Lunch and Learns will be led by the faculty and students of the Juvenile & Special Education Law Clinic at the U.D.C. David A. Clarke School of Law.

We hope that this series gives participants a chance to both explore the data around racial disproportionalities in Special Education in DC, consider the reasons for those differences, and the steps that parents, advocates and other professionals can take to create more equitable experiences and outcomes for students and families.
