Hosted by the Legal Center for Youth Justice and Education
The Legal Center for Youth Justice—a national collaboration of the Juvenile Law Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Education Law Center-PA, and the ABA Center on Children and the Law—will host a webinar exploring the intersection of education and the juvenile justice system for LGBTQ+ youth, including a discussion about how school climates push LGBTQ+ youth into the school-to-prison pipeline, the experiences of LGBTQ+ youth in juvenile justice facilities, and educational issues LGBTQ+ young people face when reentering their communities. A panel discussion will focus on advocacy tips for practitioners who work on behalf of LGBTQ+ students in schools and/or juvenile justice facilities, with speakers from organizations including the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Gender and Sexuality Clinic; Lambda Legal; and the National Center for Lesbian Rights.
Date: February 26
Time: 12–1 p.m. ET
