Justice for Emerging Adults (pt. 4 of 4 series): Examining Alternatives - A Different Approach
Thursday, April 8, 2021, 12:00 PM until 1:00 PM
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.
Session Four, entitled "A Different Approach: How Do We Get There?", will examine practices and policies that respond to the needs of emerging adults through community based responses. Topics will include specialized court and probation, prevention and intervention strategies, and funding models to support them.
