Videos from Reclaiming Futures’ annual Leadership Institute held this past June in La Jolla, California, are now available online!

The event, entitled “Public Health and Justice: A Partnership to Promote Equity and Well-being for Youth and Families,” brought together experts in juvenile justice and behavioral health to discuss equity and restorative justice in schools. With kids heading back to school amidst a growing national conversation about equity and structural racism in the U.S. justice system, Reclaiming Futures is pleased to make these plenary session videos available for public viewing online.

The video segments include:

In these videos, you will learn how juvenile justice and child welfare policies and practices disproportionately affect young people of color and how to combat structural racism in child serving systems. You will discover strategies that national experts have implemented to improve racial, ethnic and gender equity in the juvenile justice system. And you will gain a deeper understanding of school-based restorative justice and the role of the community (including community-based organizations) in advancing school discipline reform.

The 2015 Leadership Institute also generated a robust conversation on Twitter reaching an estimated audience of 56,000 people with the event hashtag: #RFutures15. We encourage you to review that conversation, as well, to gain additional insight into these important topics. Here are some top tweets to give you a taste of the conversation.
