On the Road to Unlocked!: Investing in Our Children and Our Communities” will highlight how restorative practices, gang-involved individuals, and innovative readiness programs are disrupting youth incarceration and reforming systems that disproportionately harm Black, Brown, and LGBTQ+ young people.

The presenters are four social justice leaders and activists — Founding Director of Restorative Justice for Oakland Youth (RJOY) Fania Davis, PhD, Boston Uncornered Co-Founder and President Michelle Caldeira, RJOY Restorative Justice in Queer Communities program practitioner Bijon Barnes, and youth restorative justice activist Tyreece Sherrill, who knows firsthand the impact and inequities of the school-to-prison pipeline and youth incarceration.

The web event is the second of a three-part series, On the Road to Unlocked!, which focuses on what communities can do to create a robust system of care that supports, nurtures, and best serves youth and their families while keeping communities safe. The Unlocked! Series is sponsored by the Social Justice Initiative of Bryn Mawr College, Youth Advocate Programs, Inc., an alternative to youth incarceration and out-of-home placements, and the National Human Services Assembly.
