An affirmative action bake sale is a campus protest event used by student groups to illustrate criticism of affirmative action policies, especially as they relate to college and graduate school admissions. According to one bake sale student leader, the goal of the technique is to "bring the issue of affirmative action down to everyday terms." The bake sales offer to sell cookies at different prices depending on the customer's race and sex, imitating the racial and sexual preference practices of affirmative action. One idea of such bake sales is to demonstrate analogies between price discrimination and affirmative action. A typical pricing structure charges $1.00 for White and Asian males, $.75 for White and Asian females, $.50 for Latino, Black, and Native American males and $.25 for Latino, Black, and Native American females. The bake sales' hosts do not support this kind of preferential treatment, rather, they argue that this preferential pricing is analogous to the preferential treatment created by affirmative action policies.

Using a transformative framework, suspension practices are examined from an ecological context. Current practices in the United States demonstrate that African American and Hispanic/Latino males are disproportionately suspended at higher rates than Caucasian students--often perpetuating a pipeline from school to prison. Guided by a participatory action research model, this study employs a mixed methods design to examine resilience and social connectedness among youth in an alternative to suspension program. Additionally, relationships at the teacher and parent level are explored to offer additional support on the role of alternatives to suspension. Findings suggest that interventions that use a strength-based approach with youth and focus on positive relationships with adults and peers is highly relevant to the perceived success of at-risk youth.
