Justice for Emerging Adults
Webinar Series

Young people between the ages of 18-24, also known as Emerging Adults, experience the worst racial disparities within the criminal justice system of any age group. In Wisconsin, this group includes 17 year olds, as well. We pulled together diverse panels to outline reasons why our system over-incarcerates this group and how we can change to stop this cycle.
