Youth Justice Visioning Session
July 28, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
The Houston community is greatly impacted by youth incarceration, as Harris County commits the highest number of youth to Texas’ state secure youth lockups. Additionally, local Harris County officials plan to build a new juvenile detention center at an estimated cost of $65-70 million. Kids do not belong in prisons, and the voices of Houston residents- particularly those most affected by youth incarceration- must be heard if a youth justice transformation is to take hold and be successful in Texas. Join us for a visioning session to answer this question: What do young people need to avoid justice involvement and lead successful lives?
