Experience a high-quality traveling version of the AAMI’s latest exhibit, Suspended: Systemic Oppression in our Schools, at Kirkwood Community College (6301 Kirkwood Blvd SW, Cedar Rapids). This exhibit examines the role public schools play in funneling students into the prison system. Elements of the criminal justice system have entered public schools around the country, resulting in zero tolerance policies and student policing that disproportionately impact children of color. Visit to learn more and explore ways to dismantle systems that feed the school to prison pipeline.
Kirkwood will rotate the exhibit: Iowa Hall (through mid-February), Cedar Hall (mid-February through mid-March), Linn Hall (mid-March through mid-April).
