Event Details

Charles Shireman Memorial Lecture: featuring Dr. Juan Sanchez of Southwest Key Programs - Where's the Justice in Juvenile Justice?

 

 Free and open to the public with RSVP. 

 

Throughout the US, youth of color and kids who are poor are disproportionately targeted for severe punishment at the hands of the juvenile justice system and in every stage of the system, including police stops, arrest, detention, waiver to adult criminal court, and sentencing. This unjust treatment creates a grim and devastating reality: broken youth, families, and communities. These factors can result in unjust sentencing and unnecessary confinement when youth might be effectively diverted into community-based programs. 


Hear from Dr. Juan Sanchez, El Presidente/CEO of Southwest Key Programs, who has 25 years of firsthand experience implementing innovative and strategic approaches for juvenile justice reform using a culturally competent model for community organizing and advocacy.

Sanchez will take a look at the broad goals of reform, reminding us that the ultimate benefit of this very difficult charge is to make a
lasting impact on the lives of young people in Oregon.
