Great turnout in Portland for UYJ’s Special Education Warehousing Seminar!

Last Thursday night’s Urban Youth Justice presentation on Special Education Warehousing of Students of Color was a great success! Thanks to all the Portland Public Schools staff, parents and community advocates that attended.
