The New York State Youth Justice Institute strives to build and strengthen the capacity of localities around New York State to adopt evidence-informed youth justice practices. We do so by disseminating information, assisting with implementation and assessing efficacy in existing youth justice programs, and by conducting cutting-edge research to advance the science and practice of evidence-based initiatives.
For Pride Month, we created this handy fact sheet that provides a brief overview of the overrepresentation of LGBTQ and GNC youth in juvenile justice systems. It also provides some useful resources if you'd like to learn more about these topics. See this flipbook below to learn more!
