Juvenile justice reformers learning from other experts

On Wednes­day, Feb. 5, the Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion will host a webi­nar fea­tur­ing three pros­e­cut­ing attor­neys who are pur­su­ing less adver­sar­i­al and less puni­tive approach­es to young peo­ple in the juve­nile jus­tice sys­tem. The experts, each from a juris­dic­tion fol­low­ing the JDAI® core strate­gies, will dis­cuss their progress and chal­lenges in imple­ment­ing change and address­ing issues of account­abil­i­ty, fair­ness, equi­ty and efficiency.

There is a wave of new pros­e­cu­tors redefin­ing their role in youth jus­tice,” says Mark Sol­er, the exec­u­tive direc­tor of the Cen­ter for Children’s Law and Pol­i­cy, a Casey part­ner and the mod­er­a­tor for this webi­nar. Gone are the days of mea­sur­ing suc­cess in con­vic­tions and length of prison terms. Instead, these pros­e­cu­tors are using the pow­er they wield to lead sig­nif­i­cant reform movements.”
