“A Turning Point for Youth Justice in Wis.”
November 22, 2020 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Presenter: Sharlen Moore, Director Youth Justice Milwaukee.
Youth Justice Milwaukee is a broad-based campaign advocating for community-based, family-centered, restorative programs as an alternative to locking up children in Wisconsin’s youth prisons. Youth Justice Milwaukee represents a coalition of persons who were incarcerated as youth, families of youth who are or were incarcerated, service providers, and local and national youth justice advocates.
Through the Youth Justice Milwaukee initiative, Sharlen Moore works to end placement of adjudicated youth at Lincoln Hills and Copper Lake facilities, to increase meaningful engagement with family of youth in the system, and to develop a collaborative planning process resulting in transparent, accountable, and effective juvenile services.
Forum Host: Ann Batiza
