Decriminalizing Race Pride, Free Speech, & Adolescent Identity Development
Monday, July 18, 2022, 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM
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.
Each month will focus on a different topic from The Rage of Innocence. In this session, Prof. Kristin Henning and Mary Ann Scali, Executive Director of The Gault Center, will be joined by Justin Hansford, Professor of Law and Director of the Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Center at Howard University School of Law, and Kristia Wantchekon, Secondary Lecturer of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and incoming Assistant Professor of Psychology at Georgetown University.
Please join to:
* Learn about the impact of racism on adolescent identity development
* Review the prosecution of Black youth and other youth of color for civic protest
* Discuss the disparate criminalization of the racial pride and identity development of youth of color in your jurisdiction
* Consider how we can use data, research, and history in our case advocacy and systemic reform
This session will be built around Chapter 5, Policing Identity: The Politics of Adolescence and Black Identity Development, of Prof. Henning's book, The Rage of Innocence: How America Criminalizes Black Youth.
While The Rage of Innocence focuses on Black youth, these sessions will also focus on advocacy for Latinx, Indigenous, Native American, and other youth of color.
