MA Appleseed receives "100K for 100" Cummings Foundation Grant
Massachusetts Appleseed Center for Law and Justice was awarded a grant of $100,000 from the Cummings Foundation. This grant will support the Center's project Keep Kids in Class: Breaking the School to Prison Pipeline. Our signature project positions Massachusetts Appleseed at the forefront of understanding the intersection of school discipline practices, zero tolerance, and youth entering the juvenile justice system. We seek to mitigate effects of zero tolerance, remove barriers to access to public education, and support at-risk youth to literally keep kids in class where they are safe, supported, and available for learning.
