"The Thin Blue Line in Schools" is an education working paper from Annenberg Institute at Brown that finds school resource officers “intensify the use of suspensions, expulsions, police referrals, and arrests of students” and disproportionately impact Black students. https://www.edworkingpapers.com/sites/default/files/ai21-476.pdf

This past year, FFLIC launched an exciting new advocacy tool that also makes for a great holiday gift! As an effort to use the power of art and stories FFLIC has created a coloring book (for adults, mature youth, and to be used as a teaching tool for younger children) titled, “Let Kids Be Kids," which is based on family's real lived experience of dealing with systems of oppression and incarceration.
