A 14 min youth-produced short film that calls for restorative justice as an alternative method to the unjust zero tolerance policies and over-policing that students face in New York City public schools.

Produced by the youth organizers of YMPJ's PEERS campaign between October 2009 and March 2010 through GAP's Community Media in Action Program.

Many of the statistics used in the film are from the Safety With Dignity by the New York Civil Liberties Union, which you can find here: nyclu.org/​content/​safety-with-dignity-alternatives-over-policing-of-schools-2009
