About the Event

The Justice Lab at Columbia University is launching Youth Correctional Leaders for Justice (YCLJ), an initiative that aims to unite current and former youth correctional administrators into a national movement calling for the end of punitive youth prison models and further progress towards systems of youth justice centered on youth and families. The launch event consists of a keynote presentation, panel discussion, and Q&A/press conference. YCLJ invites you to join and welcomes your feedback on how they can collectively build a more community-centered approach to youth justice. Please view their Statement on Ending Youth Prisons.
