CJJ and its Ethnic and Cultural Diversity Committee will host a webinar on Racial Impact Statements on June 1 at 2:00pm ET. Racial impact statements help to determine if legislation will differentially impact racial and ethnic groups and/or will benefit the juvenile justice system. Racial Impact Assessments and Statements have helped several states address policies that relate to the disproportionate minority contact core requirement of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA).

During this webinar, presenters will give an overview of racial impact statements, discuss recommendations for conducting racial impact assessments, and talk about how these assessments can work in practice. Participants will learn about the history of racial impact statements, as well as legislation and success stories in the states.

Presenters include:
