The Art of Asking Why

A School Administrator's Guidebook

"The Art of Asking Why" provides school administrators with helpful information and tools for combating the school-to-prison pipeline (SPP). The goal of the guidebook is to begin building a bridge between the school system and the various arms of law enforcement, as it is the responsibility of educators and law enforcers alike to protect and serve our communities—and the children who are raised within them.

Her Impact is not exclusive, but it is intentionally focused on advocating for the Black Girl Community in various ways. We believe a person's true value comes from God, at the same time, we live in a society that holds a diminished view of women of color. Black females face uniquely compounded obstacles to equity that disproportionately affect us. Some of these compounded issues include:

  • Higher rates of disparities in healthcare resulting in high cancer death rates and infant death in America

  • Higher instances of economic inequity among minorities in America due to having the lowest hire rates among women, even though Black women are the most college-educated minority group in America.

  • Highest instances of social criminalization amongst students in Public schools in America, much higher than minority male counterparts. This leads to high mass incarceration rates.

  • Higher rates of reported intimate partner violence among women and other racial and ethnic groups.

  • Higher prevalence of undiagnosed and untreated mental health issues among women and other racial and ethnic groups.

  • 60% of (reported) child sexual abuse among children and other racial and ethnic minority groups.

  • Less than 3% of the Executive Leadership representation in Corporate America.

  • Lower rates of representation and leadership roles in Arts-Entertainment, Tech, Media, Government, and Faith-based Organizations in America.

Our signature approach of dismantling discriminatory narratives will position our youth for more than just representation.
