The New Jersey Institute for Social Justice is seeking to understand how New Jersey has ranked as having the worst youth justice racial disparities in the nation, with Black kids being 18 times more likely to be incarcerated than white kids even though they commit the same crimes at the same rates. They are planning a report that will examine the various touchpoints where youth face discipline. They will then make state recommendations to stop this harmful pipeline.
They are inviting residents of Paterson, Camden, Trenton, Ewing, Hawthorne and Cherry Hill to participate in a 2-hour focus group for which they will be compensated $50.00. These focus groups will take place this and next week.
Please use this link to select the dates and times that work for you and NJISJ will send a follow-up zoom invitation. Feel free to share this information with anyone who may be interested.
