Join us for the first of a two-part series on Reducing Racial and Ethnic Disparities in County Justice Systems. Racial and ethnic disparity (RED) refers to the unequal treatment of individuals of color in the criminal or juvenile justice systems, which is often represented in jail populations. On this webinar, a national expert at the W. Haywood Burns Institute will outline how county elected officials can identify racial and ethnic disparities in their justice system and discuss how to use this information to inform policy and funding decisions. Then, county officials will share their process for identifying disparities in their own systems and how they are using data to address it. The second part of the series will include an interactive virtual discussion with the webinar speakers to answer your questions and discuss additional solutions. The virtual discussion will be held on Friday, April 22 at 2pm EDT. To register for the virtual discussion, click here.
