Entrepreneur: Lisa María Rhodes

Founded: 2019

ALAS uproots barriers that limit education, career, and civil rights of immigrant and court-affected students by organizing youth and families to lead educator training and policy advocacy.

ALAS’ trainings and policy advocacy reshape the educational systems’ engagement with and proactively support of youth who are arrested or undocumented.

Our youth and families help educators, policymakers and community members reshape attitudes, conscientiousness, and responsibility to create environments of belonging at school and to disrupt mass incarceration for youth.
