End Girls' Incarceration Webinar

Past Event
Thursday, Apr 12, 2018
3:30 PM — 4:30 PM

The Vera Institute of Justice (Vera) invites the country to join us in taking a historic step for girls by leaving girls’ incarceration in the past.

Our Initiative to End Girls Incarceration is accepting applications from juvenile justice agencies seeking to participate in a jurisdiction-wide initiative to eliminate the confinement of girls and lesbian, gay, bisexual, gender non-conforming, and trans (LGB/TGNC) youth in female units of their juvenile justice system. Vera will work with selected jurisdictions for at least one year to develop and implement a strategic plan for eliminating the confinement of girls though improved policy, practice and programmatic approaches that work to divert girls from custody.

Tune into the webinar to learn more and ask questions about the initiative and application process.
