Virtual Juvenile Justice Convening: Transformative Relationships – The Essential Role of Positive Relationships in Promoting Youth Justice
Thursday, November 30th-11:00 am - 2:30 pm
Join us on Thursday, November 30 from 11:00 AM – 2:30 PM EST via Zoom for the fourth virtual juvenile justice convening “Transformative Relationships: The Essential Role of Positive Relationships in Promoting Youth Justice.” There will be a discussion by faith-based leaders at a variety of organizations working to foster positive relationships between families, institutions, communities, and justice involved youth about how they got involved with this work, as well as how they work with churches and faith-based organizations and leaders in serving youth and their families.
During this convening, CPJ will be launching a faith-based youth justice toolkit “Reimagining Youth Justice: How Faith-Based Leaders Can Be Involved,” which will provide attendess with practical resources to engage with youth justice. The toolkit will be presented from 12:30-1:00 pm during the convening. Prepared by Community Connections for Youth (CCFY) and the Center for Public Justice (CPJ), the toolkit aims to equip people of faith to advocate on behalf of youth in the justice system. The toolkit was designed to help people of faith take practical steps towards supporting, advocating, and serving young people who are at a critical juncture in their development, one threatened by their entanglement with the justice system. You, your church, organization, or agency will gain insight into ways to improve the programming and services you currently offer youth or practical ways to get involved.
As youth crime and violence have increased throughout the country during the COVID-19 pandemic, which in many ways has worsened economic disparities for our most vulnerable youth, faith-based leaders have an urgent need to learn about these issues.
