Workshop 1 (Day 1, AM) Status of Girls in Florida: Educational Attainment, Health, and Wellbeing across communities. The power of analyzing data through multiple lenses increases our understanding of what is happening to all girls and compels us to dig beneath the surface. We examined important indicators linked to educational achievement, as well as the impact of girls’ experiences in their communities, schools, and families on her health and well-being. Vanessa Patino Lydia, VP of Research at the Delores Barr Weaver Policy Center will share highlights from the first two research publications with a focus on indicators that demand our attention.
Workshop 2 (Day 1, PM) Justice for Girls: Collective Action. Power lies in collective action. The Policy Center and The Children’s Campaign and ally groups have set three bold goals to bring about reforms for girls, young women and youth who identify as female who are impacted by the justice system. Learn how you can get involved or deepen your activism to end the disparate treatment of girls in the justice system and change policy and practices that trap girls in a life of poverty.

This workshop will focus on the need for a collaborative approach to juvenile justice reform and best practice strategies for transcending barriers across systems of care.
