Webinar: “Addressing Justice System Inequities Head-On”

Leaders of local criminal justice initiatives often need to facilitate sensitive conversations when evidence points to disparities in the system. Disparate outcomes can take many different forms, such as longer jail stays for people with serious mental illnesses or disproportionate numbers of people of color being booked into jail. Elevating these topics as priorities and guiding system stakeholders toward meaningful action may feel uncomfortable, challenging, and stressful for the people driving the conversation.

Webinar: “How to Respond Effectively to People with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities in the Criminal Justice System”

People with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) are an often overlooked population in the criminal justice system because of a lack of identification and understanding and service gaps that prevent providers’ abilities to address their needs. At the same time, they are also often victimized by people without I/DD, which can sometimes lead to sustained involvement with the criminal justice system.
