The pipeline into children’s law needs to be diversified and children’s law as a field needs to be more accessible to people, including those with lived expertise. How we frame and talk about this work matters as does the language we use. Historically, organizations that employ children’s lawyers have been part of the problem, but we currently have an opportunity to be part of the solution. Join our speakers for an interactive discussion about these issues and hear ideas for solutions to make the field of children’s law more accessible.

The Gault Center and the Georgetown Juvenile Justice Clinic & Initiative invite you to the 2022 Racial Justice Training Series.

Join them for monthly interactive strategy sessions designed to bolster youth defenders’ racial justice advocacy with research, data, and themes from The Rage of Innocence: How America Criminalizes Black Youth by Kristin Henning.

In this session, Prof. Kristin Henning and Mary Ann Scali, Executive Director of The Gault Center, will be joined by Dr. Shameka Stanford, Juvenile Speech-Language Pathologist; and Duci Goncalves, Deputy Chief Counsel of the Youth Advocacy Division at Massachusetts' Committee for Public Counsel Services.

* Discuss data on "contempt of cop" arrests and use of force on youth
* Learn how implicit racial bias impacts our perceptions of adolescent speech and adolescent emotional responses to authority figures
* Understand how speech and language disorders impact police encounters with youth
* Consider how we can use data, research, and history in our case advocacy and systemic reform

This session will be built around Chapter 7, Contempt of Cop, of Prof. Henning's book, The Rage of Innocence: How America Criminalizes Black Youth.

Participants will:
* Develop concrete and actionable strategies to use data, research, and history in individual client representation, policy advocacy, and systemic reform;
* Learn about the most recent data and research on the topic;

It is time to end the unjust practices behinds girls' incarceration. There are at least 41,000 girls’ detentions and thousands more long-term commitments each year, typically in correctional facilities that mirror adult prisons designed for punishment and isolation. The young people who are put in these harmful settings are already some of the most marginalized youth in our country: they are disproportionately poor, LGBQ/TGNC, and Black, Native American, and Latinx youth who have experienced multiple forms of chronic generational adversity, usually from a young age—including housing instability or homelessness, child welfare involvement, sexual abuse, commercial sexual exploitation, parental incarceration, historical trauma, discrimination, and many others. National research has consistently shown that girls and gender-expansive youth experience unique pathways into the youth legal system and have unique and distinct needs from diversionary programs. Despite these differences, girls and gender-expansive youth are most often left out of research, policy analysis, and programmatic investments, leaving systems unable to adequately respond to their needs. They end up arrested and pushed into the legal system because they are criminalized for their responses to trauma or the steps they take to protect themselves. Once in the system, girls and gender expansive youth are unjustly incarcerated for reasons that contradict best practice: to discipline noncriminal violations (like running away), protect the young person’s own safety, or provide access to services that all children have a right to receive in their own community.

This webinar will discuss the drivers of girls' incarceration, how community-based supports can disrupt those drivers, and how local communities can and are working to end the criminalization and incarceration of girls and gender expansive youth of color.
