Transforming the L.A. County Juvenile Justice System
Friday, Oct. 27
1 - 2:30 p.m.

L.A. Area Chamber
350 S. Bixel St.
Los Angeles, CA 90017

***SPEAKERS ADDED: L.A. County Supervisor Hilda Solis and Anti-Recidivism Coalition founder Scott Budnick.

The juvenile justice system in Los Angeles has undergone numerous changes over the past few years. In 2017, the L.A. probation camp population reached an all-time low -- 325 youth in 11 camps -- though approximately 1,000 youth remain in custody across L.A. County. In response, the L.A. County Probation Department has developed a plan to close six probation camps in the region. Additionally, the $48 million renovation of Campus Kilpatrick, referred to as the "L.A. Model," ushered in a renewed focus on rehabilitation, evidence-based practices, education and vocational training. With the current leadership of the L.A. County Board of Supervisors, the recent establishment of the L.A. County Office of Diversion and Reentry and the L.A. City Office of Reentry, as well as other re-entry support organizations, L.A. is primed to transform the juvenile system.
Join us for a conversation with former U.S. Secretary of Labor and now L.A. County Supervisor Hilda Solis, L.A. County Probation Department Chief Terri McDonald; Alex Johnson, president, L.A. County Office of Education's Board of Education, and managing director of Californians for Safety and Justice; and Scott Budnick, founder and president, Anti-Recidivism Coalition.
