Eliminating School Pathways to the Juvenile Justice System

The Las Vegas My Brother’s Keeper Alliance is hosting a full day conference entitled Eliminating School Pathways to the Juvenile Justice System. This conference is a follow up to the January 2017 Dismantling the School to Prison Pipeline, and includes national experts, legislators, school administrators, law enforcement, educators, social services providers, clinicians, advocates, and other community stakeholders. This is an action focused convening to discuss implicit bias awareness, strategies and interventions to reduce the number of youth who unnecessarily come in contact with the juvenile justice system, and school-justice partnerships. The Las Vegas My Brother’s Keeper Alliance is a cross-sectoral collaborative comprised of three task forces that work to engage the community, promote optimal educational outcomes, and improve law enforcement systems and programs.

Conference location is the Historic Fifth Street School. Parking available across the street in the City of Las Vegas Parking Garage; parking validated at the event. Call (702) 229-6052 or email lquick@lasvegasnevada.gov for more information.
