Are the Kids Alright? COVID-19 and Youth Virtual Forum
June 2, 2020 @ 8:00 am – June 5, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Organized by the NYS Youth Justice Institute, this series of web-based panel discussions will explore the pandemic’s current and foreseeable impacts on children, teens, and young adults, as well as innovative approaches to the present crisis.
Each panel will focus on a key environment affected by the pandemic and relevant to justice-involved youth: their homes, schools, communities, justice systems, as well as detention and placement settings.
Experts from diverse fields will examine these issues while centering on the disparate impacts of COVID-19 on historically marginalized populations. Join us in reimagining a more equitable, compassionate, and empirically-driven youth justice system.
