Be Her Resource: A Toolkit About School Resource Officers and Girls of Color

This toolkit is based on first-of-their-kind focus groups and interviews conducted by the Center on Poverty and the National Black Women’s Justice Institute with school resource officers (SROs) and girls of color. It offers strategies and guidance to improve interactions between school-based police and girls of color and decrease the disproportionate use of school discipline with girls of color. The report was focused on the South, an area often overlooked in related research.
