March 18, 2011

On May 20–24, 2011, in Washington, DC, the Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) will hold its annual spring conference.

CJJ's Annual Spring Conference will address current themes in sentencing reform, the needs of status offenders, juvenile life without parole, efforts to reduce racial/ethnic disparities, and more. A special screening on the first night of the conference will feature the documentary, "Me Facing Life: Cyntoia's Story," the story of a girl arrested for murder. The session will feature a question and answer period with the film's director, Daniel Birman, and a panel of responders.
