Mitigating Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Juvenile Justice
Join the Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy and the WestEd Justice & Prevention Research Center (JPRC) for the second in our ongoing series of engaging online conversations that will use scientific evidence to explore this critical issue. Our first event, held on January 12th, was very well attended and discussed the evidence behind police training innovations in procedural justice, implicit bias, de-escalation, and community policing.

For this second event, we focus on juvenile justice. Although there are large national decreases in the use of detention and incarceration of youth, disparities in who gets into the juvenile justice system and who receive its harshest penalties, persist.

This event brings together leading scholars and experts who will examine whether there are innovations in juvenile justice that can lead to more equitable outcomes in who gets into the system, who is detained, and who receives the necessary services and training to be successful following system involvement.

Following a framing presentation by JPRC Director Anthony Petrosino, our featured speakers Nancy Rodriguez (University of California, Irvine), Sean Darling-Hammond (BITJustice and WestEd), and David Muhammad (National Institute of Criminal Justice Reform) will share research, evidence, and challenges in tackling this important issue.
