Removing Youth From Adult Jails: Learning from Successes in the District of Columbia, Massachusetts, and North Dakota 

Thursday, Sept. 30, 2021, 3 p.m. - 4 p.m. ET

The Juvenile Justice Reform Act of 2018 calls on states and territories to ensure that young people who are awaiting trial in adult court are not held in adult jails and lockups unless it is in the interest of justice to do so. Join us to hear from three jurisdictions about how they navigated this change, including programming and financial planning. The session will also explore the nuts and bolts of the planning process and practical steps taken to complete the transfer of youth to juvenile facilities, as well as the importance of both legislative and executive actions in making this transition. 

Presenters:
Peter Forbes
, Commissioner, Massachusetts Department of Youth Services
Lisa Jahner, Program Manager, North Dakota Association of Counties
Melissa Milchman, Grants Management Specialist, D.C. Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants
Marcy Mistrett, Senior Fellow, The Sentencing Project
Cecely Reardon, General Counsel, Massachusetts Department of Youth Services
