Judith Browne Dianis Discusses Racial Disparity in Kids’ Arrests

Former Fellow Judith Browne Dianis (’92) was quoted in an article on Columbia Law School’s website about the racial disparity in arrests, especially among African-American (“Why Are Police Arresting So Many Children of Color?” August 2019). “Safety does not exist when black and brown young people are forced to interact with a system of policing that views them as a threat and not as students,” Judith said. “Police in schools is an issue of American racial disparity that requires deep structural change.”
