The National Center for Juvenile Justice
(NCJJ) has released a new racial and ethnic fairness section of the Juvenile Justice GPS-Geography, Policy, Practice & Statistics
(JJGPS), an online resource funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation
. This website features national and state information on state laws and juvenile justice practices to help policymakers and stakeholders chart system change. The new section on racial and ethnic fairness explores the increasing diversity of the youth population, including the different state and local approaches to monitoring racial and ethnic fairness. This content area also discusses transparency in the state reporting of racial and ethnic fairness vital signs, as well as recent trends in resources for advancing the issue with state level coordinators.
An upcoming feature to the JJGPS website will focus on high-level state profiles across all JJGPS areas.
JJGPS is one of several strategies in support of juvenile justice reform through the Models for Change initiative.
NCJJ is the research division of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges.
