Studies have shown that Black youth continue to be disproportionately represented in Canada's criminal justice system.** The legal system treats Black youth differently, as compared to their non-Black peers, whether through the greater use of force by law enforcement or in receiving harsher penalties during sentencing. In a panel discussion hosted by the Faculty of Community Services and the Lincoln Alexander School of Law at Toronto Metropolitan University, key experts will explore the restorative approaches that Black communities are using to disrupt the cycle and empower youth with the resources and resilience needed to thrive as adults in society.
This event is open to FCS alumni, students, and faculty at TMU, as well as the wider community. We look forward to seeing you there!
