Keynote Speaker: Dr. Rita Cameron-Wedding

The purpose of the conference is to inform and engage our community in a clear understanding of “Implicit Bias” and its contribution to the disparities and disproportionality in our community and systems. We seek to inform the community of the work of Race Matters for Juvenile Justice and to gain commitment to both broaden and deepen the scope of our inquiries and interventions.
