Stopping the Prison Pipeline: Becoming a Youth Justice Advocate
Wednesday, Jan 13th: 7-8:00pm
An important part of ending mass incarceration here in Michigan is fundamentally reforming our juvenile justice system. In this program, Mary King, the former Director of the Michigan Youth Justice Center, will be talking about some of the critical and time-sensitive reforms needed in Michigan’s Juvenile Justice System to address the horrendous racial disparities we find throughout this system. If, following this program, you decide you would like to become a youth justice advocate, we will be having a more formal, two to three-part training, in the near future. The Episcopal Church of the Incarnation is partnering with the Michigan Youth Justice Center and other organizations and faith communities to create a state-wide network that will promote the reforms our Juvenile Justice system so badly needs.
