Racial Disparity Picture Gallery

Nearly 50 community members came to Greenville Branch Library on the evening of Tuesday, March 7, 2017 to participate in a discussion on Racial Disparities in New Jersey’s Juvenile Justice System. After hearing from three distinguished panelists, the attendees engaged in a lively discussion about the issues. Andrea McChristian, associate counsel at New Jersey Institute for Social Justice and author of the report “Bring Our Children Home: Ain’t I a Child” presented findings from her report. She was joined by Retha Onitiri, also of NJISJ, who spoke about what community organizations are doing to address the disparities they have found, as well as local activist Amy Albert, a staff attorney at Brooklyn Defender Services and the founder and chair of Jersey City’s Haven Adolescent Community Respite Center, which is a program that helps young people at risk of entering the formal judicial and penal systems.
