Charleston Alternative to Incarceration
Panel and Discussion
Charleston County Public Library
68 Calhoun St, Charleston 29401
Do you believe that our communities can care for young people better than prisons? Are you interested in joining a conversation about how to develop alternative to incarceration programs and alternative to suspension programs for Charleston youth?
Join speakers from the Charleston County School District, the Richland County Public Defenders Office, and Girls Rock Charleston in conversation with Executive Director Ruben Austria and youth leaders from Community Connections for Youth, a New York-based nonprofit organization that develops community-driven alternative to incarceration!
Speakers will engage in discussion about how system and community stakeholders can work together to reduce suspension rates, keep kids in school and out of the criminal justice system.
