Racial Justice Toolkit

Racial Justice for Youth

A Toolkit for Defenders

Developed in partnership with Georgetown Law's Juvenile Justice Clinic & Initiative, the Racial Justice Toolkit provides resources for youth defenders and advocates who are committed to advancing racial justice in court, in policy advocacy, and in their communities.

Originally provided to defenders on a standalone website, the Toolkit is now housed on The Gault Center's site, so that youth defenders can access the Toolkit's wealth of resources as they search the national clearinghouse of youth defense resources.
