Supreme Court of Missouri's Commission on Racial and Ethnic Fairness invites community feedback about juvenile justice

14 June 2017
ST. LOUIS – The Supreme Court of Missouri’s Commission on Racial and Ethnic Fairness expects to hold public feedback sessions this summer to gain the public’s input into Missouri’s juvenile justice system.

The public is invited to attend these sessions, which will focus on listening to ideas, experiences or recommendations from community members about the juvenile justice system and ways Missouri courts can best meet the needs of our youth. The commission also will share its progress in addressing currently identified issues and the ongoing process for future changes.

All community members interested in providing feedback about Missouri’s juvenile justice system are welcome to attend the first session, scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, June 24, 2017, at Greater St. Mark Family Church, 9950 Glen Owen Drive, Ferguson, MO 63136.

Future community forums are being planned for Cape Girardeau, Kansas City, St. Louis and Springfield. The commission will provide details about these public feedback sessions as they become available.
