The ACLU of Arizona works to ensure all students have equal access to public education and that students’ constitutional rights are protected.

Through the Demand to Learn campaign, we are partnering with families and schools to end the systemic problems that cause students to be pushed out of school and into dead ends.

The ACLU of Arizona wants to end harsh disciplinary practices that push students out of school: zero tolerance, asking students to voluntarily withdraw, suspending them, expelling them, or referring them to law enforcement for minor offenses. Our goal is to meaningfully reduce the number of suspensions and expulsions in and around Phoenix by 2020.

Join us by sharing your experiences with exclusionary and/or discriminatory treatment in Arizona schools. Help us end the systemic problems that cause students to be pushed out of school. Please share your story with the Demand to Learn campaign by completing this form.
