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.
On February 26, JJIE.org will roll out the special racial justice and ethnic fairness section of our Juvenile Justice Resource Hub. Its in-depth research, toolkits, expert advice and resources will provide everything you need to know about race and fairness in the juvenile justice system – and how to take best practice steps to address the inequalities.
