Every year, thousands of girls and gender-expansive youth are arrested, detained, and placed on probation across the state of California. Recently, efforts to keep girls and gender-expansive youth of color in the community and out of custody have gained momentum, and California is poised to lead the country, showing that ending girls’ incarceration is possible. In March, Vera and Young Women’s Freedom Center released a first of its kind report on girls’ incarceration in California, detailing the scope of girls’ incarceration in California and offering a roadmap for county and statewide changes to end girls’ incarceration in California. The report offers policymakers, funders, advocates, and communities the data and evidence they need to understand the breadth of girls’ incarceration in California and take steps to fully eliminate it. The analysis shows that it is possible for every county in California to end girls’ incarceration with bold and decisive action. Together, Vera and YWFC are working to realize the vision of fully eliminating the incarceration of girls and gender-expansive youth across the state.

Join this webinar to learn more about successful efforts to end girls’ incarceration currently under way in counties across California as well as Vera and YWFC’s campaign to bring this work statewide by seeding models for county and local-level reform, investing in research, data, and community-led solutions to guide reform efforts, and advancing the policy change necessary to end girls’ incarceration in California.
