The Gault Center and the Georgetown Juvenile Justice Clinic & Initiative invite you to the 2024 Racial Justice Webinar, "Challenging the Status Quo: Mobilizing Youth Defense Teams to Uphold Youth Rights and Uproot Injustice."

This year's racial justice webinar will focus on a collective call to action for the youth defense community to transform the juvenile legal system by centering youth and their constitutional rights to freedom, liberty, and equality. This webinar will equip youth defenders with practical tools rooted in the National Youth Defense System Standards to uphold and strengthen the constitutional rights of youth as a mechanism to break down systemic and racial injustice.
