LatinoJustice PRLDEF, Drug Policy Alliance, NHCSL - The National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators, & UCLA Latino Policy & Politics Initiative. A virtual 2 day convening breaking down the impact of the criminal justice system on our gente & discussing pathways towards liberation. (May 13, 2021)
This panel will discuss ending youth incarceration through a Latinx lens. Latino youth are 65 percent more likely to be detained or held in youth facilities than their white peers, according to data from the Department of Justice. We will discuss the drivers of youth incarceration; why youth should be treated differently than adults; what Latinx youth need to thrive; and how we can build power to create and change national policies to end youth incarceration.
