Maria --

A new and captivating one act play: *Breaking the School to Prison Pipeline*,
by local playwright Robert Ricks, is shining a light on the criminalization
of young people in our schools. With a cast made up entirely of Rochester
City School students, *Breaking the School to Prison Pipeline* brings the
voices of students to life as they try to navigate a system stacked against

Perception becomes reality for too many young people caught in the
school-to-prison pipeline. Trauma, poverty, racism, disability, and layer
upon layer of obstacles are put in a child’s way, and then something
seemingly insignificant--walking the halls, wearing a hat, talking
back--can put them irrevocably on a path to prison.

Be a part of the conversation that is too important to miss. Join us
at *Franklin
High School, Saturday, November 21st at 7:00pm* for this heartfelt
performance. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased online at:
