PJU Parents and Youth Stand Up for School Equity

Standing together, PJU parents and students hosted a rally and picket in front of Emily Griffith Technical College in Denver, CO to continue the fight to end racial disparities in Denver Public Schools. The Halloween themed rally featured parent and student testimony to raise awareness about the school-to-prison pipeline and demand food equality for schools in southwest Denver. Since the release of the Padres & Jóvenes Unidos Health Justice Report, there have been changes from DPS Food and Nutrition Services, but there is still work to be done. PJU moms and student leaders have their list of demands to present to DPS that they believe will truly ensure equity across the district - in the cafeteria and beyond.
