Youth Justice in the COVID-19 Era
November 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
With more than 2000 incarcerated youth testing positive for COVID-19, the juvenile justice system has struggled to keep youth safe and their families informed. The Sentencing Project has been tracking the issue closely to understand the ways that states and counties are responding to the toll of the virus.
Join The Sentencing Project and youth justice leaders as we discuss local responses to the coronavirus and how families of incarcerated youth are fighting back.
