2011 - Race Matters for Juvenile Justice Symposium
Justice Initiatives sponsored a Race Matters for Juvenile Justice Symposium on Friday, January 28, 2011 at 8:30am-1:00pm at The Charlotte Westin. The symposium provided an opportunity for judicial officers, systems' experts, and community partners to come together and discuss the disproportionate representation of families and children of color in our juvenile justice court system. Attendants were allowed to ask questions as everyone tried to put forth an effort to reduce such racial disproportionality and disparities, while ultimately moving toward a goal of improving outcomes for ALL children and families.
Event flyers, programs and more can be found on our Past Events page.
