Criminal Justice Reform: Alternatives to Incarcerating Our Youth
Saturday, May 1, 2021, 9:00 AM until 10:30 AM
LWV Public Events
In 2019, the Johnson County District Attorney's office filed 1,504 cases against juvenile offenders (ages 10-17).
Once incarcerated, children are at risk of physical and psychological abuse and inadequate educational instruction, often leading to future arrests.
Join us to learn about alternatives to the incarceration of youth and a panel discussion about how to hold youth accountable while also providing them opportunities for redemption and success.
