Event Details

Justice involved women and girls enter and exist in the criminal justice system with their whole beings. They bring life experiences rooted in identity – race, class, ability, sexuality and more. How are we as service providers meeting the needs of women and girls at the margins? How do our institutions and programs account for these identities? This conference will begin to shed light on the specific traits, strengths and needs of women and girls at the margins.
