About the Event
Nola Kesia Brantley
It is important to have discussions with foster and juvenile justice involved youth about social injustices that impact their families and their communities. In this training we will explore racism, structural racism, historical oppression and over-policing and its impact on foster and juvenile justice involved youth, their families and communities. The trainer will share strategies to navigate these difficult conversations.
· Participants will be able to discuss social injustices with foster and juvenile justice involved youth.
· Participants will be able to adapt their discussions about social injustice based on the youth’s developmental age.
· Participants will be able to actively listen to youth share their thoughts and emotions about recent social injustices.
