Last week Loyola Law School hosted "The Educator as Advocate," a symposium which brought together organizations including the Office of Civil Rights, Public Counsel, Alliance for Children's Rights, LAUSD, UCLA and the LA Public Defender's office to discuss topics ranging from the impact of student records on criminal sentencing, school safety versus the over-policing of schools, trauma-informed education practices, and much more.

CCSA's own Ricardo Soto was featured on a panel with speakers from the Office of Civil Rights, Learning Rights Law Center, and LMU on the top education myths, where he addressed concerns that charter schools don't serve all students. Attendees ranged from social justice lawyers and LAUSD principals to students in LMU's education program.
