      Implementing Change: Working to Address the Intersections of Juvenile Justice and Youth Homelessness

      Sep 21 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern

      A growing number of communities are working to ensure that young people do not experience homelessness as a result of involvement with the justice system, and that similarly, they do not come in to contact with the system because they are experiencing homelessness. On any given night nearly 1.3 million young people are experiencing homelessness. Many of these youth will also come in to contact with law enforcement, be arrested, and/or be incarcerated. Join us to learn how Philadelphia, Pa., and Minnesota are working to combat this cycle, and learn about the Principles for Change, a series of policy recommendations that communities and states can adopt to help address these intersections, and the application of these principles for youth in custody.

      Presenters Include:

      Callie Aguilar, Juvenile Justice Specialist, Minnesota
      Jennifer Pokempner, Juvenile Law Center, Child Welfare Policy Director
      Maureen Richey, Policy Analyst, Reentry , Council of State Governments Justice Center
      Naomi Smoot, CJJ, Executive Director
