BGEA Emergency Town Hall: Disrupting the Pathways to Juvenile Justice for Black Youth
Black Girls Equity Alliance’s new report, Understanding and Addressing Institutionalized Inequity: Disrupting Pathways to Juvenile Justice for Black Youth in Allegheny County, reveals that Pittsburgh and Allegheny County have disproportionately high arrest rates and referrals to juvenile justice for Black youth.

This town hall meeting will bring together leaders from the Pittsburgh Public Schools, justice professionals, researchers and advocates to examine the data and discuss changes to policy and practice to keep children in school and collaboratively disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline.
