Dignity in Schools Campaign-New York

Student Support Not Incarceration

Dignity in Schools Campaign-New York (DSC-NY) is a coalition of New York City public school students, families, educators, and advocates, organizing to transform our schools into safe, welcoming places that support young people to live full, self-determined lives.

DSC-NY Budget Campaign

We call on NYC’s elected officials to shift funding towards the resources and restorative practices that support every young person to learn and grow, and away from the police presence and culture that disrupts learning and violates the dignity and safety of students.
