The Color of Youth Transferred to the Adult Criminal Justice System: Policy and Practice Recommendations

The Color of Youth Transferred to the Adult Criminal Justice System: Policy and Practice Recommendations

In our brief, The Color of Youth Transferred to the Adult Criminal Justice System: Policy and Practice Recommendations. CFYJ and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW)
outline how black youth end up at the front door of adult courts
through three state case studies of Oregon, Florida, and Missouri.
We dive into the historical context of racial terror inflicted on black
communities that has shaped the foundation of systemic policies,
practices, and procedures that compound disproportionality.
