Locked in Solidarity is CCDA’s national advocacy and action week for mass incarceration. This year, CCDA partners will be instructing two timely webinars that will deepen your understanding of mass incarceration, juvenile justice and trauma response:
Our live webinars will stream right here on Feb. 7th and 8th, 2018
Juvenile Justice: Every Youth, Every Facility, Every Church
Amy Williams and Scott Larson
February 7th at 3:00pm CST
1,000,000 Children Arrested.
500,000 Locked Up.
1,400 Detention Facilities.
Join Juvenile Justice advocates and practitioners Amy Williams and Scott Larson as they discuss the issues surrounding the Juvenile Justice system, youth offenders and the church’s call and responsibility to the young inmate. Issues discussed will include the School to Prison Pipeline, current Juvenile Justice reform issues, practical ways to connect and build relationships with juvenile offenders and how you can be a part of the Every Youth Every Facility national movement.
There will also be a special announcement that every youth pastor who is called to this mission will want to hear!
Trauma-Informed Responses to Violence & EJUSA’s Police/Community Initiative
Shari Silberstein, Lionel Latouche, and Heather Beaudoin
February 8th at 1:00pm CST
Violence has severely damaged the lives of millions of people. Our nation’s responses to violence, including mass incarceration and overpolicing, have in turn inflicted further harm. EJUSA’s Police/Community Trauma Program brings together police officers and community members for dialogue and learning about trauma, racism, and the justice system. This webinar will share lessons from our work with police to explore how trauma impacts constituencies across the justice system, how those working for criminal justice reform can advocate for the needs of trauma survivors, and how a framework of trauma can bridge divides and build powerful new opportunities for system transformation.
