Agenda

Webinar 'Implementing Justice: State Advisory Groups' Critical Role in Reducing Incarceration'

Seminars

Date

Thursday 18th of January 2018

Description

In 2017, Utah's state legislature enacted sweeping reforms that aimed to reduce the state's population of incarcerated youth by nearly 47 percent by 2022. The changes will free up nearly $70 million over the next five years, funds that will be reinvested into evidence-based practices. Participants will learn more about these reforms, how they came to be, and what the implementation process looks like. Presenters will also share information on the role that the State Advisory Group has played in passing and implementing the bill.

Presenters will include Rep. Lowry Snow of the Utah House of Representatives, Pamela Lachman, Deputy Director for Juvenile Policy, Crime and Justice Institute at Community Resources For Justice, and Pam Vickrey, Utah SAG Chair and Executive Director of Utah Juvenile Defender Attorneys.
