2017 CJJ Annual Conference
Council of SAGs’ Meeting and Hill Day

June 14-17, 2017
Washington Hilton Hotel
Washington, DC

CJJ's 2017 Annual Conference, "Access, Accountability, & Advocacy: Addressing Educational, Physical, and Mental Health Needs in the Juvenile Justice System," will take place June 14-17. Participants will have the chance to meet with their Senators and Representatives on June 14, with the full conference taking place on June 15-16. Conference attendees are invited to stay through on June 17 for the annual meeting of State Advisory Group members, CJJ's voting and policy setting body.  

This national event will bring together stakeholders from across the country to discuss ways to address the needs of children who are involve with the system, or are at risk of becoming involving with the system. Presenters will also talk about ways to make sure that children receive quality care if they do become involved with the juvenile justice system. Sessions will focus on the latest research, developments, and challenges facing our field today. Specifically:

  • What can be done to help ensure access to educational, physical, and mental health services before youth come into contact with the juvenile justice system?
  • How can we use what we know about youth development to improve educational and health services for young people who are involved with the system?
  • What can be done to ensure systems remain accountable for providing youth with adequate services?
  • What role does advocacy play as communities seek to improve services and provide for trauma-informed care for children and youth?
