Each year, the Coalition for Juvenile Justice hosts a national conference uniquely focused on improving juvenile justice and delinquency prevention systems, services, practices, and policies. This year, the conference will focus on the latest research, developments, and challenges facing the field today. Specifically: how states and communities can serve as leaders in shaping a better juvenile justice system for vulnerable youth; how to improve collaborations with young people with lived experiences; what can be done to leverage partnerships to help improve physical and mental health services and better address youths’ needs for education and housing; and what role advocacy plays as communities seek to improve services and provide for trauma-informed care for children and youth.
Date: June 20–22
Location: Washington, DC
