The conference is open to only for adults that completed RMJJ’s two-day racial equity workshop and recognized by racial equity workshop alumni.


Race Matters for Juvenile Justice (RMJJ) a 501 c-3, is a collaborative leadership group formed by the Juvenile Judicial of North Carolina’s 26th Judicial District. It brings together judicial officers, systems experts, service providers, and community partners who have set an agenda to reduce the disproportionality and disparate outcomes for children and families of color in the juvenile justice system.

On Monday, September 25, 2023, Race Matters for Juvenile Justice will present its fifth Biennial Community Conference, “Cross-Systems Collaboration to Advance Racial Equity”. 

This conference will convene youth and adult racial equity workshop alumni from the court, law enforcement, education, non-profits, health and human services, social services, and the community to level-set and establish a collaborative process to build a plan of action to address root cause racial disparities across systems and institutions.

Conference objectives:

  • Organize and build our alumni community to create the capacity for collective impact. 
  • Provide alumni an opportunity to connect and foster rapport across systems that strengthens social capital and encourages collective empowerment among participants. 
  • Recognize RMJJ partners that have institutionalized and modeled practice change within their systems or institutions. 
  • Provide practical next steps on our learning journey for “Cross-Systems Collaboration to Advance Racial Equity”.
