About this Event

In recognition of Governor Herbert’s 2015 declaration which designates October as Juvenile Justice Awareness Month, the Utah Board of Juvenile Justice and community partners are hosting a free, public event. This event is open to all ages. Registration is encouraged.

Learn Their Truth: Elevating Youth Voice in Utah's Justice System will showcase the voices of those who have experience in the juvenile justice system through a variety of formats including spoken word, visual art, and written work. Leaders, both youth and adult, will be awarded for their service and commitment to the juvenile justice system.

This year's event will include a presentation from Choose 180, a Seattle-based organization whose mission is to "transform the lives of youth and young adults by partnering with institutional leaders, connecting them with community, empowering them with choice, and teaching them the skills necessary to avoid engagement with the criminal justice system."
