21 Within the last 30 days of taking the survey:  22% were stopped by the police for questioning  15% were stopped by the police on their way to or from school  20% were stopped by police because of the clothes they were wearing

22 Tell us about a time when you witnessed or experienced an injustice or unfairness that upset you: I heard a group of teens who were on there way to their friends funeral but because they all were wearing the same R.I.P. shirt they were stopped by the police and beaten (female, multiple ethnicities) I’ve seen kids of color stopped from leaving the school building by security guards to check their id’s (when they were done for the day and were permitted to leave the school), wheras I, as a white student, was questioned only once when leaving the building and have walked out of the building (past security guards) on several occasions when I should have been in class.
