PERTH AMBOY – “Hands Around City Hall” is a community gathering in support of our youth. Educators and community declared our commitment to educate every child and keep Perth Amboy a Hate Free Zone and call for an end to discrimination and bullying.

The event is part of a national day of action called for by the Alliance to Reclaim our Schools ( We stand together—as teachers, as parents, as students and as communities—to say that education justice is racial justice and demand investment, not neglect. We are calling for an end to the school to prison pipeline.
