Washington Building Leaders of Change (WA-BLOC) seeks to disrupt educationally embedded systemic racism and dismantle the school to prison pipeline. Since 2015, WA-BLOC has been organizing Freedom Schools at Rainier Beach High School in south Seattle; the 2017 Freedom School brought together 60 students to build “intergenerational place-based leaders of change” through alternative summer learning. WA-BLOC leaders have also advocated for transportation justice, resulting in $1 million for transit passes for low-income students.
