Did you know that youth of color are overrepresented at nearly every point of contact with the juvenile justice system?

On February 19, JJIE hosted a live video chat with James Bell of the W. Haywood Burns Institute and Katayoon Majd of the Public Welfare Foundation. It was an informative and candid conversation on racial and ethnic disparities and the over-representation of youth of color in the juvenile justice system.

  1. The content was excellent, James Bell’s expertise is well known and respected so it’s great to hear him speak directly to the topic issues.
    – However, it would be great if JJIE would spend more time in developing broadcast interviewing techniques (get rid of the ‘uhm’s’ and the ‘uh’s’. Delivery is a real distraction.
    – And all throughout, from beginning to end there was a tiny echoing from everybody’s feed.
    – Please do more interviews with critical content like this one, I’d like to see a few with Randall G. Sheldon, and other folks deeply involved in youth justice.
