Brief Program Description

This presentation will investigate the various distractions, barriers, and pipelines to prison (risk-producing machines) that many young people are faced with today. Participants will examine how these negative practices affect the self-respect and self-love students need in order to maintain their focus during their academic journey. Once these risk-producing machines are identified, students will be able to understand the purpose of the distractions weaponized against them and effectively create a personal code of conduct that will counter the assault on their humanity. The code of conduct provided at this presentation will equip them with the tools to protect their passions while simultaneously building their futures. This presentation will also examine words used to categorize and label students for the purpose of the dehumanizing machine
