ASHE Town Hall on College Attainment for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women of Color
A town hall forum will take place on November, 15th, in Tampa, Florida. Open to the public, it will be ASHE’s first major effort to connect its members with concerted efforts to support and center women and girls of color, particularly those affected by mass incarceration and those who have fallen victim to over-policing in schools, ultimately influencing their pathways to college and attainment of a college degree. Much of the discourse around these populations centers men and boys of color with limited to no attention to women and girls.
GOALS OF THE COLLABORATION
The town hall will demonstrate the urgent need for higher education researchers to be more community engaged and to conduct research that centers those who are vulnerable within our society and often forgotten; women and girls of color.
