ACLU Rally and Demonstration on AB 420 Willful Defiance in Sacramento, CA. Introduced to the State Senate, AB 420 seeks to remove Willful Defiance as a category for school administrators and teachers to justify the removal of a student from class. Willful Defiance is a broad, subjective and undefined category. Research has shown that an overwhelmingly majority of students of color, young men of color and LGBTQ students are suspended via “willful defiance”. These pictures are from the rally organized by the ACLU NorCal.
