OA students in the Washington Urban Debate League

This past weekend, the Washington Urban Debate League kicked off the local debate season, online!  Students from 26 different schools gathered from living rooms across the region for 9 hours of fun and intense intellectual exchange. Students are leaning into this moment in history, debating about Criminal Justice Reform (though we chose this great topic in January), addressing important questions of reforms to policing, sentencing, and forensic science.
