200 students expected to attend first Youth & Justice Forum | Community Spirit
From the City of Spokane:
Local criminal justice, education and city partners will team up to host the first Youth and Justice Forum in Spokane for teenagers to promote racial and ethnic diversity in the justice system workforce and better reflect the changing community.
Students will get a well-rounded experience during the day-long forum on Friday at the Gonzaga University School of Law beginning at 8:45 a.m. The agenda is packed with interaction, demonstrations and great opportunities for students to ask questions and learn. Students will be encouraged to think about and understand their legal rights and obligations as a member of their community.
“This is a chance to give students positive exposure to the criminal justice system at an early age,” said Spokane Mayor David Condon. “Our goal is for students to leave with a whole new perspective on the criminal justice system.”
Over 200 students are expected to attend.
