We at The W. Haywood Burns Institute (BI) believe that a major reason why so many youth of color come into contact with the juvenile justice system is because other forces beyond their control have a powerful undertow that often pulls them into the system. We have been convening a number of experts from various fields to explore how certain substantive issue areas overlap, and to identify what drivers from each area may lead youth of color to the juvenile justice system. The subjects have been: Immigration, Housing/Gentrification, Health, Workforce Development, and Education.
