CLOSEYoung activists raised in Ventura County are taking to school districts to protest racial injustice and demand change through the student-led coalition Justice in the Classroom.
Kavita Rai, 18, a graduate of Newbury Park High School, spearheaded the coalition in early June after talking with friends.
Justice in the Classroom initially was made up of students within the Conejo Valley Unified School District.
Jenny Fitzgerald, a Conejo Valley Unified School District trustee, said these steps should have been addressed in public education a long time ago.
Justice in the Classroom is a student-led coalition advocating for racial justice, updated curriculum and more in Ventura County school districts.
