Every year, CJJ hosts a conference focusing specifically on the issue of racial and ethnic disparities (R/ED) in the juvenile justice system. These conferences give juvenile justice stakeholders from around the country an opportunity to share strategies and explore solutions to this serious problem. This year’s conference will bring together stakeholders working to fight disparities at the local, state, and national levels, as well as the larger juvenile justice community. For more information about CJJ, please visit www.juvjustice.org. 

CJJ’s 2022 R/ED Conference will focus on ways that young people and their communities, as well as law enforcement, schools, court officials, advocacy groups, and State Advisory Groups can work together to combat racial and ethnic disparities (R/ED). Specifically, the conference will focus on: 

  • What changes can be made at the system’s front end to reduce R/ED?  
  • How can law enforcement, schools, attorneys, the judiciary, community leaders, and legislators work together to combat the crisis? 
  • What role do investments in community, young people, and healing play in addressing R/ED? 


The primary goal of CJJ’s 2022 R/ED conference is to help system stakeholders - including policymakers and state R/ED Coordinators - combat racial and ethnic disparities through peer-to-peer learning, and expert training. Workshop sessions will provide participants a hands-on opportunity to explore solutions that have been shown to work in other jurisdictions.
