Free-To-Learn Project Fundraiser
The Free-To-Learn Project, a subsidiary of JC Productions, Inc., out of Richmond Va., is currently asking for the financial support of parents, community activist and groups to help us protect our children, your children, against the school-to-prison pipeline.
Please, donate or refer resources of companies that would support our cause to our email address or GoFundMe Page for donations.
School children as young as 5 years old are being unnecessarily suspended from school and many times charged with criminal acts and arrested for behavior that was at one time considered normal childhood conduct.
This process has become completely outrageous in many school districts around the country and is having not only a devastating affect on children, but on parents and families also. As a people in a highly sophisticated democracy, WE MUST PUT A STOP TO THIS MADNESS IMMEDIATELY.
Please join us in our fight to challenge school districts, local authorities, and law makers around the country to return to simple common sense when dealing with our children. If we do not stop this insanity, we are only submitting to a new-age police state.

And if this were the early 1900s, we would be attending the funeral of my daughter after her public lynching. However, this is the new millennium and we are rebuilding our daughter's confidence level after she was taken from English class and locked in juvenile detention overnight for defending herself in a fight at school. Punishment by social order is a timeless act but not all methods and reasoning behind that punishment has stood the test of time....[READ MORE]
