The Conservative Case for Juvenile Justice Reform
November 17, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EST
Policymakers and thought leaders—of all political persuasions—are increasingly concerned with the way states and the federal government administer their juvenile justice systems. Strikingly, juvenile justice reform recently passed the House and now waits on Senate action, a testament to the newfound seriousness of this issue.
With more and more research demonstrating current approaches fail to balance law enforcement accountability, personal responsibility and rehabilitation, the time to reshape and redirect the policy conversation is now.
On November 17th at 3 p.m., the R Street Institute will host a panel exploring reasons why fiscal conservatives, libertarians, and members of the pro-life movement are working together to improve the juvenile justice system.
