Racial Justice Advocacy Toolkit and Resources

There continues to be a huge disproportion in the number of children of color in the justice system at every stage of the process. Yet not all policymakers are cognizant of this and many do not take it into account in drafting legislation and other policies. NJJN members are dedicated to pursuing anti-racist policies in the youth justice system. Our Racial Justice Advocacy Toolkit provides a factsheet on racial disparities in the youth justice system, to which you can add your state specific information. We have also included key resources to complement this fact sheet, including talking points, challenging harmful media narratives, and links to additional resources further detailing the disparities.
