The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) in partnership with the Center for Children’s Law and Policy will hold the 3rd annual Reducing Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Juvenile Justice Certificate Program, from August 3-7, 2015, in Washington, DC. The program seeks to help jurisdictions reduce overrepresentation of youth of color in the juvenile justice system through a data-driven and research-based approach.
Subsidies through the Center for Coordinated Assistance to States are available for jurisdictions that show a heightened readiness to utilize the curriculum and to undertake changes in their correctional
facilities and secure residential programs. Participants must submit their applications by May 15, 2015.
