On Saturday, February 9, 2013, CJCJ will present at the Western Society of Criminology Annual Conference in Berkeley, CA.
Workshop 1: California Juvenile Justice Reform: The Positive Youth Justice Initiative, sponsored by the Sierra Health Foundation, will be moderated by CJCJ Executive Director Daniel Macallair, and features the following panelists:

With the transfer of juvenile justice services to the local level, a consortium of foundations created the Positive Youth Justice Initiative (PYJI) to promote the statewide implementation of best practices at the local level. This workshop will provide a broad overview of California juvenile justice reform and present an approach to redesigning and restructuring juvenile justice services at the local level.
