Burning Down the House: The End of Juvenile Prison

When: Wed., Jan. 14, 6-8 p.m. 2015

One in three American children will be arrested by the time they are twenty-three, many of them for so-called status offenses—including cutting school, drinking alcohol, or disrespecting a police officer—that are not crimes for adults. On Wednesday, January 14, 2015, Nell Bernstein, author of the book "Burning Down the House: The End of Juvenile Prison," joins Zachary Norris, executive director of the Ella Baker Center, and Raj Jayadev, executive director of Silicon Valley Debug, for a compelling conversation about the state of America’s juvenile justice system and alternatives to juvenile incarceration.
