The Press-Enterprise — The newspaper wrote about the related community events that were held before the #SchoolsNotPrisons art and music festival at Cal State San Bernardino on Aug. 27.

#SchoolsNotPrisons is a 10-city tour, which included an “artivism” exhibit Aug. 26 at Anne Shirrels Park in San Bernardino and is organized by Revolve Impact, a Los Angeles-based company that works on justice-related campaigns. San Bernardino was the second stop on the tour, after Sacramento. An event on Aug. 25 ended with participants pledging to join in a San Bernardino County task force on safety and intervention.

Many people already shared the goal, said San Bernardino City Unified School board member Gwendolyn Rodgers afterward, but the unity was inspirational. “That was the most moving part, taking that pledge,” Rodgers said. “We need to stand together and work on prevention.”

The article was published Aug. 27, 2016, and also appeared in The Sun.
