The Focus of Our Efforts
EDUCATION & OUTREACH
The Education Advisory Group of The Miles Hall Foundation is dedicated to helping students create anti-racist, safe and inclusive learning environments where all students are valued, where systemic racism, individual biases and mental health stigmas are challenged and eliminated, and where students learn to be advocates for change in their schools, community and society.
Through our advocacy at city, county and state levels, we are making a real and positive change in the community. One of our key areas of focus here at The Miles Hall Foundation is the passage of The Miles Hall Lifeline Act - AB 988, a bill providing for an alternative to calling 911 and providing for crisis responders to be trained mental health professionals and peers instead of law enforcement.
The Miles Hall Foundation is committed to changing policies to prevent the use of excessive and lethal force in situations where law enforcement are responders to mental health crisis events.
