On December 4-6, 2016, the Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) will host the 2016 CJJ National DMC Conference in Baltimore, MD. This conference will focus on disproportionate minority contact (DMC) in the juvenile justice system. The Maryland State Advisory Group will cohost this event, "Confronting the Crisis: Creating Pathways to a More Equitable Juvenile Justice System,” which will address ways state advisory groups, young people and their communities, law enforcement, and court officials can work together to combat racial and ethnic disparities. Sessions will explore what other communities can learn from Baltimore; the role of state and local entities; how communities can take action; and the importance of youth engagement.

CJJ is seeking proposals for workshops to be held on December 5-6, 2016.
