Welcome to the 12th Annual Youth & Justice Forum.

Connecting Kids, Cops and the Community

Who We Are

Focused On Solutions

The Forum seeks to address longtime tensions between communities of color and local law enforcement, with a focus on minority youth. Presentations, dialogue and interactive scenarios are used to address the impact of issues like constitutional rights, systemic bias, racial profiling, over-policing, the no-snitching culture, diversity training, obstacles faced by minority enforcers, among other topics. Building trust is key to reducing long-simmering tensions, improving
community-police relations and establishing mutual respect. The Forum’s target population is minority youth ages 10-18, with a specific focus on minority youth.
