Victims in the Juvenile Justice Reform Movement

Youth in trouble with the law and people who have been victims of crime are often seen -- mistakenly -- to be at odds. In fact, these individuals often overlap, and share an interest in creating a justice system that is responsive to their needs and is effective in reducing the number of people who commit offenses and who are victimized. Effective reform of the juvenile justice system cannot happen unless we ensure the fair and humane treatment of both youth who have committed offenses and those who have been harmed by the acts of others.

Below, we share some of our recent teleconferences on this topic, as well as related reports from the field. We will be updating this frequently, so be sure to drop back in. (Are we missing a key resource? Email us at info@njjn.org.)
