Please join us for an exciting Webinar put on by NAWJ’s Ensuring Racial Equity Committee and Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare Committee, on July 22, 2021, entitled: “Disrupting the School to Prison Pipeline.” The purpose of the Webinar, which will be the first in a two-part series, is to discuss the correlation between the suspension and expulsion rates for youth of color and their subsequent disproportionate representation in the juvenile, foster care, and family court systems.
Our distinguished panelists are Past President of the National Council for Juvenile and Family Courts and Texas Third Court of Appeals Chief Justice Darlene Byrne; San Diego State University Dean’s Distinguished Professor of Education and Vice President of Student Affairs and Campus Diversity, Dr. Luke Wood; and Mr. Jarrell Daniels, a former incarcerated youth, who is a 2021 Truman Scholar at Columbia University and a leader in youth justice endeavors. This event will be moderated by Retired Judge Ernestine Steward Gray, Orleans Parish Juvenile Court.
