Falling into Oregon’s Juvenile Justice System can change the life course of a young person who has been adjudicated for violating the law. If a youth is adjudicated, the Juvenile Justice System focuses on providing a safe and stable environment while holding youth accountable for their behavior; it also encourages them to finish school, learn skills, and live a productive, crime-free life after completing their probation or commitment to the Oregon Youth Authority.
This program presents a discussion of how this system accomplishes these goals. Our panel is composed of Judge Deanne Darling, Juvenile Court Judge for Clackamas County, Christina McMahan, Director of the Clackamas Juvenile Department, Fariborz Pakseresht, Director of the Oregon Youth Authority, and Sang Dao, a young person who graduated magna cum laude from PSU while serving at the MacLaren Youth Correction Facility. They will provide information about how Oregon’s Juvenile Justice System works and what are some of the challenges.
Light refreshments will be served.
Cost: Members $15, Non-members $20
