Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Questioning, and/or Gender Nonconforming and Transgender
Girls and Boys in the California Juvenile Justice System: A Practice Guide!
Impact Justice and the National Center for Lesbian Rights developed this practice guide to support California probation departments in meeting their obligation to promote the safety and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, questioning, and/or gender nonconforming and transgender (LGBQ/GNCT) youth in their care and custody.
In 2013, the National Research Council published Reforming Juvenile Justice: A Developmental Approach, a report that signaled what could be a sea change in juvenile justice policy and practice. Among other things, the report posited that the current juvenile justice system’s reliance on “containment, confinement and control,” which “removes youth from their families, peer groups, and neighborhoods,” is in many ways at odds with what the science shows will work best with youth at risk for, or involved with, the juvenile justice system.
