Racial and Ethnic Disparities: How States and Communities Can Work Together to Combat Disproportionality

April 24 at 2 p.m. Eastern

Racial and ethnic disparities continue to be a major problem in states and communities across the country. Research shows that youth of color who engage in behaviors that are similar to their white counterparts are more likely to be arrested, less likely to be placed in a diversion program, and more likely to be incarcerated. Moreover, even as many states and localities have dramatically reduced out-of-home placements overall in the past decades, disparities at the point of arrest and commitment have actually increased nationwide. Join us to find out more about how communities and states can take action to address this issue. Participants will learn about ways to collect and use the information they need to make meaningful change. They will also learn about cross-system impacts and the importance of recognizing the intersectionalities that are involved in addressing DMC.

Presenters Include:

Jason Szanyi, Deputy Director, Center for Children's Law and Policy
Shay Bilchik, Director, Center for Juvenile Justice Reform

      Racial and Ethnic Disparities: Communities in Action

      May 25 at 2 p.m. Eastern

      States and communities both play an important role in addressing racial and ethnic disparities. However, many jurisdictions struggle with the question, “We have the data – now what?” During this session, attendees will learn more about the Center for Children’s Law and Policy (CCLP) and their work with states and localities to implement data-driven reforms that achieve measurable reductions in racial and ethnic disparities in the juvenile justice system. Attendees will hear from communities that have participated in this work, and also from jurisdictions that have attended the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) Reducing Racial and Ethnic Disparities Certificate Program. CJJR’s one-of-a-kind training program, delivered in partnership with CCLP, enables participants to take a deep dive in to how they can affect systems change at the local level and develop and implement a local Capstone Project reform effort.

      Presenters to be announced.
