Racial and Ethnic Disparities

Thank you for your interest in racial and ethnic disparities. It is our mission to ensure that all youth in Missouri are treated fairly. In doing so, it is our effort to raise the knowledge and awareness of disproportionate minority contact as well as promote evidence-based & best practice strategies and policies to eliminate the overrepresentation of minority youth in Missouri’s juvenile justice system.

“One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility, we can welcome many people, even those in deep distress, and perhaps help them find self-confidence and inner healing.”
Jean Vanier, Community and Growth

Together we can ensure that ALL Missouri youth are treated fair.
