The time for reform has passed. A shift must begin to engage deep care of community members in crisis: ensuring that they have adequate support for their mental health needs, that there are competent providers responding to those in crisis, and that the means to supply and exceed these needs is not excused away as a lack of financial resources when the reactive police force boasts a budget of over $260M but fails Black bodies in need.

Although SB 167 has been pulled, a grave threat remains to Indiana schools, students and teachers alike. House Bill 1134, which passed out of the education committee with a “do pass” recommendation, is functionally identical to SB 167. Its passage out of committee means that teachers, school workers, students, families, administrators, and community members must organize rapidly to defeat the bill. Its passage would cause a massive worker exodus from a sector already suffering heavily from worker shortages, a death knell for public education.
