September 2020—Abre' Conner
“How do we make sure there is equity in the education system?” That is the question Abre' Conner puts forth. When in law school, Abre' was able to stop and take critical stock of some of her previous educational experiences. She looked back and saw too many times where an inequitable and inadequate education system failed her. Now, as a staff attorney at the ACLU of Northern California, she is the one students in the Central Valley of California can call for help and to make a change.
