A panel of members of law enforcement, advocacy, politics, youth activism, and community and faith-based organizations discusses the results of the Disproportionate Minority Confinement in Massachusetts report. The ACLU headquarters in New York recently released a report on Disproportionate Minority Confinement in Massachusetts. The report specifically examines how black and latino youth are over-represented in every phase of the juvenile or criminal justice system, and offers recommendations to the Governor on how the state should address the issue. In conjunction with the report's release, the Northeastern University Institute on Race and Justice organized this community event with ACLU, Roxbury Defender's Office and Youth Advocacy Project to provide a forum for community response and dialogue around DMC as a state problem.
