Alameda County Summit for Youth, Justice & Education

The Alameda County Summit for Youth, Justice & Education will convene 300 educators, community leaders, youth and political advocates who are committed to supporting education over incarceration for our most vulnerable youth. Participants will build on existing, positive reform efforts and investigate new approaches to create multiple, sustainable pathways to college and career for students currently inside or at risk of entering the juvenile justice system.

Keynote presentations by: Dr. Shawn Ginwright, national expert on African American youth, youth activism, and youth development; Dr. Monique W. Morris, author and social justice scholar; and George Galvis, cofounder and executive director of Communities United for Restorative Youth Justice. 

Join us to engage with statewide and local leaders in education and juvenile justice reform through interactive workshops, networking and dialogue to: 

  • Form a network of committed individuals and organizations to assist youth involved in and targeted by the school-to-prison pipeline
  • Raise awareness of the complicating factors that build the school-to-prison pipeline and work to address the systemic failures that harm youth 

 

The Summit is proudly presented by the Alameda County Office of Education and Peralta Community College District.
