The Bronx Defenders Hosts Its Second Annual Youth Justice Summit!
This week The Bronx Defenders hosted our 2nd Annual Youth Justice Summit! The Summit brought together at our Justice Campus over 100 students from 5 different schools to participate in a series of 12 workshops facilitated by our allies at The Point, Drug Policy Alliance, the Juvenile Justice Project, and the Justice Committee. Students from across the Bronx learned how to assert their rights when interacting with police officers, engaged in debates about the school-to-prison pipeline, and met with Bronx Defenders staff members for insight into our work and how to find careers in social justice.
