Webinar To Examine Restorative Justice and Disproportionate Minority Contact
February 24, 2012
On March 14, 2012, at 2 p.m. E.T., the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) will present the Webinar, "The Road to Juvenile Justice: The Intersection of Restorative Justice and Disproportionate Minority Contact."
Juvenile justice practitioners must strike a balance between ensuring public safety and justice and accountability for youth affected by disproportionate minority contact (DMC). Restorative justice practices implemented at the "nine points of contact" within the juvenile justice system can be effective tools to reduce DMC. This Webinar will examine strategies that both rural and urban communities use to hold youth accountable and will consider how they can support local DMC-reduction efforts.
Registration is available online.
