NAPD presents a webinar, "Incorporating Race and Culture Into Criminal Cases."

Twyla Carter, National Policy Director at The Bail Project, will talk about the history of slavery and how white supremacy and racism continue to permeate American society so that you can weave race and culture into your criminal and death penalty cases to help you tell your client‘s personal story.

The Bail Project is a national nonprofit organization that provides free bail assistance and pretrial support to thousands of low-income people every year. The Bail Project‘s ultimate goal is to be a catalyst for long-term systemic reforms that make bail assistance unnecessary.

Juvenile Law Center is launching the commemoration of their 45th Anniversary with 45-minute lunchtime conversations on some of the most pressing issues on behalf of youth in the child welfare and justice systems.

This week: "Beyond the Death Penalty and Life without Parole: Centering Adolescent Development"

A series of SCOTUS decisions have established that “kids are different”. This conversation will explore how adolescent developmental science can further inform our systems, laws and policies.

Moderated by Marsha Levick, Esq., Chief Legal Officer, Juvenile Law Center with Tami Benton, MD, Psychiatrist-in-Chief, Executive Director and Chair of the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia; Abd’Allah Lateef, Senior Strategic Advisor and Racial Equity Specialist, Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth; and Robert Schwartz, Co-Founder and Executive Director Emeritus, Juvenile Law Center.

As part of its Research for the Real World Seminar Series, National Institute of Justice is hosting the “Dual System Youth: At the Intersection of Child Maltreatment and Delinquency” webinar.

Across the country, child welfare and juvenile justice systems now recognize that youth involved in both systems (i.e., dual system youth) are a vulnerable population who often go unrecognized because of challenges in information-sharing and cross system collaboration. In light of these challenges, national incidence rates of dual system youth are not known. To address this gap in knowledge, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention awarded the presenters a grant to: (1) propose a methodology to generate a national estimate of dual system youth, their trajectories leading to multiple system involvement, and the key characteristics/trajectories of this population; and (2) identify the successes and challenges associated with cross-system collaboration and information sharing in jurisdictions.

This presentation will summarize the work of this study as well as continuing research in the area. Specifically, presenters will discuss the recommended terminology for the various permutations of dual system youth and their pathways to system involvement. The outcomes of three feasibility studies using linked administrative data from Cook County, Cuyahoga County, and New York City will be presented, which include summary profiles of youth and incidence rates of dual system youth based on pathway to system involvement. Best practices for dual system youth and cross-system collaboration will then be discussed, including a description of a best practices rubric that can be used to capture the use of best practices for dual system youth within jurisdictions and specific examples of implementing these practices from the field. Recommendations for reducing and addressing dual system involvement will also be discussed.
