Youth Justice in the COVID-19 Era
Josh Rovner of The Sentencing Project will moderate a panel discussion about the safety of youth who are incarcerated as COVID-19 takes its toll within institutional settings. The Sentencing Project has been tracking these issues and reports that more than 2,000 incarcerated youth have tested positive for COVID-19. Joining Rovner for the discussion are Kristian Blackmon of the Campaign for Youth Justice, Valerie Slater of RISE for Youth (Virginia), and Gina B. Womack of Families and Friends of Louisiana’s Incarcerated Children. Register for the webinar here.
