In this livestream, U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) hosts a panel discussion entitled States' Innovations in Juvenile Justice: Investing in Better Outcomes for Youth, bringing together state and federal officials, lawmakers, juvenile justice experts and advocates for a 90 minute panel discussion on juvenile justice reform in America.
Several states across the U.S. have developed and implemented innovative reforms to reduce the number of children committed to juvenile detention facilities, decrease school referrals to the juvenile court system, and keep children in their communities and schools. Connecticut, Texas, and Ohio have led the way in recent years by adopting these new approaches with great success. Not only have these states saved millions of dollars in wasteful spending and cut back on harmful, ineffective approaches, but they have improved outcomes for children. By reinvesting funds back into programs proven to work, states can grow even more savings by helping children become productive adults.
