Race, Place, & Juvenile Justice - A panel discussion

Grand Ballroom Lounge, Stamp Student Union Rm 1209 University of Maryland
Monday, November 21, 2016 - 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
RACE, PLACE, & JUVENILE JUSTICE
 
Monday 21st November, 6pm-7.30pm and reception to follow
Grand Ballroom Lounge, Stamp Student Union, Rm 1209, University of Maryland
 
The United States incarcerates the highest proportion of children and adolescents in the world. Crime rates among American youths are not significantly higher than anywhere else, yet our juvenile justice system is the largest and most expensive—and seems to reserve its harshest treatment for children and adolescents who are black and Latino. Our panel of activists, educators, justice officials, students, and formerly incarcerated individuals will examine how we got into this mess and what we can do to make juvenile justice in Prince George’s County, in the state of Maryland, and across the United States more cost-effective, more responsive, and more humane.
