Posted by Juvenile Law Center on March 2, 2021

Emerging adults, young people between the ages of 18-24 years old, experience the worst racial disparities within the criminal justice system of of any age group. Research, case law, and practice show that changing policies and services for this age group significantly increases their success and improves community safety.

This Webinar, entitled “Myths & Facts: Why the Huge Disparities?” will dispel common myths that prevent reform efforts like public safety, cost and negative racial stereotypes. Topics will include: underlying causes and harms of high incarceration rates, facts that support needed change, and positive impact of reform on community, individuals and families. Marc Schindler (Justice Policy Institute), Tyrone Walker (Justice Policy Institute), and Peggy West-Schroder (EXPO) will lead our discussion.
