    An Interactive Virtual Discussion on Reducing Racial and Ethnic Disparities (RED) in County Justice Systems

    Join us for the second 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.  This interactive virtual discussion will allow participants to ask questions of a national expert at the W. Haywood Burns Institute and county leaders to continue the dialogue on reducing racial and ethnic disparities.  Before joining the online discussion, participants are encouraged to watch the webinar from April 7 that outlined 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.
