A panel discussion on youth incarceration and juvenile justice reform in Dane County, Wisconsin.
Dane County simultaneously carries a reputation as the best place to raise children, and the worst place to raise children depending upon the color of one’s skin. As a case in point, the Dane County Juvenile Detention Center comprises 80% youth of color, despite being only 28% of the overall population. How did this happen? And why does it continue to persist? Find out in this engaging panel discussion hosted by Justified Art! and GSAFE, featuring representatives from local government, schools, non-profit organizations, and the community.
Featured panelists include:
Matthew Braunginn | Co-founder, Young Gifted and Black Coalition
Justin Creech | Police Officer, Madison Police Department
Lisa Graves | Executive Director, Center for Media and Democracy
Sharlen Moore | Executive Director, Urban Underground
Rudy Bankston | Community Liaison, Madison Metropolitan School District
Moderated by Ali Muldrow, Director of Youth Programming, GSAFE
