#CounselorsNotCops: Wake County Black Student Coalition Demands

Youth Justice Project

Students across Wake County have joined together to demand #CounselorsNotCops. For this campaign, the Youth Justice Project of the Southern Coalition for Social Justice joined with the Wake County Black Student Coalition (WCBSC), Education Justice Alliance, and ACLU of North Carolina to release a second #CounselorsNotCops video featuring WCBSC members demanding safe, Black-affirming schools free from the threat of police targeting and brutality.

The Wake County Black Student Coalition was formed to unite all Wake County students to help end systemic racism and the oppression of Black people in our community. With student engagement and education, WCBSC has led protests and met with school board members to demand the removal of all police officers from Wake County Public Schools.

Members of WCBSC, as well as gifted poet Hausson Byrd, and Letha Muhammad, Director of the Education Justice Alliance, share the impact of police and the #PoliceFreeSchools they want.
