That’s why the Committee on a Prioritized Plan to Implement a Developmental Approach to Juvenile Justice Reform, under the direction of the Committee on Law and Justice (CLAJ), will hold its second meeting on February 13-14th, in Washington D.C. — and you’re invited. 

The committee is expected to assess strategic and policy priorities to reform the juvenile justice system, using the recommendations from Reforming Juvenile Justice

The committee will cover a variety of topics, including access to and quality of counsel, family engagement, the role of state advisory groups, and racial and ethnic disparities. 

  • The role of advocacy: as part of the meeting, JPI Executive Director Marc Schindler will speak on a panel on Friday, Feb. 14 at 10:15 am EST, along with representatives from the National Juvenile Justice Network and the Campaign for Youth Justice, on the intersection of advocacy and the realization of a developmentally appropriate juvenile justice system.
