Dear Juvenile Defenders and anyone interested in the intersection of juvenile justice and race:Please see the invitation link below for the 2015 Southern Juvenile Defender Center Summit, June 5-6 in New Orleans. Registration is free, and scholarships for lodging are available for those who share rooms; travel is not covered. As in years past, the conference runs all day Friday (June 5) and through Saturday morning (June 6) before adjourning at lunch time.
The Summit will address a range of topics relating to advocacy on behalf of youths in the juvenile justice system, with particular focus this year on effectively addressing matters relating to race, both in and out of court.
Space is limited, so if you wish to attend, I encourage you to register at your first opportunity. Feel free to contact our office if you have any questions.
