Learn about a critical issue affecting Connecticut kids.

Join CYSA on February 28th to view and discuss the CPTV documentary The Color of Justice.  The film examines the role race plays in Connecticut's juvenile justice system.


This workshop will focus on understanding the issue and on finding concrete ways that professionals can act to promote equality for all Connecticut youth. See a great film. Discuss the issue. And learn how caring adults - like you - can make change.


The state's own studies show that minority children enter the juvenile justice system at a higher rate than their white peers and are treated more harshly there. Research shows that these differences aren't because of how kids behave, but because of the decisions that adults make.


After making the documentary, CPTV partnered with the Connecticut Juvenile Justice Alliance to organize forums around the state to help communities delve into the issue. The Alliance has spearheaded major juvenile justice reforms that have improved public safety while reducing the number of youths sent to the state's most expensive juvenile justice programs.
