NJJN Virtual Forum 2020

 NJJN Forum is Going Virtual! 

Friday, July 10th, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. ET

Every year we look forward to Forum, when we can all come together, reflect on the year, celebrate each other's wins, have deep conversations, and learn from our peers. 

2020 has been a year of pandemics, uprisings, tackling racism head on and planting seeds of transformation. To that end, we at NJJN aimed to cultivate content highlighting our members' work across the country to deconstruct the systems that harm young people and offer a new vision for youth justice that leads with equity and humanity. We encourage you to join us on July 10 to watch, learn, and engage to learn innovative strategies and actions you can take to build a brighter future for our nation’s youth.

Check back for a full agenda!
