YLC leads trainings at NJDC's Annual Leadership Summit

YLC is honored to have been included in last week’s National Juvenile Defender Center‘s annual Leadership Summit! Staff Attorneys Erin Palacios and Meredith Desautels served as faculty at this year’s summit which took place in West Palm Beach, FL, and brought together hundreds of juvenile defenders and youth advocates from around the country to share knowledge and build connections. Erin co-facilitated a workshop entitled “Securing Shelter: Addressing Legal Barriers to Youth Housing” and Meredith co-facilitated a workshop entitled, “Building a Community-Driven Youth Decarceration Movement: The Campaign to Shut Down the Juvenile Hall in San Francisco” with our partners at Young Women’s Freedom Center and the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office.
