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

In this session of our 2022 Racial Justice Training Series and Book Club, Prof. Kristin Henning and Mary Ann Scali will be joined by Dr. Juan Del Toro, researcher in applied developmental psychology and Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities; Dr. Tiffani J. Johnson, Assistant Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at UC Davis and board certified pediatric emergency medicine physician at the UC Davis Health Children’s Hospital; and Joe Houston, formerly incarcerated founder of We Fit DC, personal trainer, motivational speaker, and community activist.

Please join us to:
* Learn how Black, Latino, Indigenous, Asian, and other youth who have been oppressed experience policing as a form of racism that is intersecting with other experiences of discrimination in their lives;
* Review data and history on the policing of youth of color;
* Understand research on the impact of direct and vicarious police contact on the mental and physical health of youth color;
* Pay special attention to the trauma Black girls experience in contact with the police;
* Discuss ways advocates can support youth of color as they process the traumatic effects of policing;
* Strategize about how defenders can use this research to enhance their case and policy advocacy on behalf of youth of color.

This session will be built around Chapter 9, Policing as Trauma 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.
