The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) at Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy, in partnership with the Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) and the Center for Children’s Law and Policy (CCLP), with the support of OJJDP, is delighted to announce the launch of the new Center for Reducing Racial and Ethnic Disparities (R/ED) in Juvenile Justice. As part of this effort, CJJR and its partners will provide training, technical assistance and resource development designed to help the field promote racial equity and reduce racial and ethnic disparities in youth justice.

On Tuesday, April 9th, CJJR and its partners held a webinar to introduce the goals and core activities of the new Center. In addition to remarks from OJJDP Administrator Liz Ryan, the webinar included information about the Center’s new Youth and Family Expert Advisory Council—an exciting new opportunity that will inform and support all the Center’s efforts.
