OJJDP Listening Session Report: Creating and Sustaining Fair and Beneficial Environments for LGBTQ Youth
(NCJ 245321) June 2016
Report, 57 page(s)
This report summarizes the information, ideas, and perspectives that were shared at an OJJDP-sponsored listening session on improving the care of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth who are involved, or at risk of becoming involved, in the juvenile justice system. Participants' recommendations will lay the foundation for a strategic framework to address the unique needs of LGBTQ youth, help state and localities develop appropriate policies and practices, develop interagency agreements with other federal partners, leverage and enhance OJJDPs current training and technical assistance, and encourage research to identify promising programs for this population.
