Strengthening Arts and Juvenile Justice (2020 Event)

Recorded On: 05/01/2020


About this Breakout Session

This advocacy training session focuses on strengthening the arts and juvenile justice. Our main advocacy ask is to urge Congress to appropriate $61.5 million for Title V Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention Initiative Grants at the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), and include report language instructing OJJDP to include the arts as an eligible component of its prevention, diversion, reentry, and residential juvenile justice grant programs.
