FREE Webinar: Campaign Lessons from Closing Youth Prisons – March 28, 12:30 PM
Join Law@theMargins Editor Chaumtoli Huq’s conversation with Youth First Initiative staff, partners and youth leaders on their campaign to close youth prisons.
This webinar in collaboration with Youth First builds on our 2016 webinar on Dismantling Youth Prisons where author Nell Bernstein and policy advocate Mishi Faruquee focus on why we need to end youth incarceration and to explore community based alternatives to prison.
In this second webinar, we will hear some of the lessons Youth First Initiative and its partners have learned in closing youth prisons. We will explore effective organizational and resource mobilization strategies, national-state partnerships, youth leadership, and building capacity and leadership of local organizations.
