What Does JJDPA Reauthorization Mean for Kids? (Webinar)

Event Dates
The new law strengthens the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act's (JJDPA) core protections for youth and makes other significant improvements that reflect new developments that have taken place in youth justice since it was last reauthorized in 2002.

The webinar speakers, Naomi Smoot, Executive Director of the Coalition for Juvenile Justice, and Rachel Marshall, Federal Policy Counsel with the Campaign for Youth Justice, worked closely with Congress to get the bill passed and will help you to navigate and understand the many changes in the law.
