A Guide to the Juvenile Justice System


Today sees the unveiling of the Youth Justice Board's wonderful comic book/guide to the juvenile justice system, with an event featuring NYC Probation Commissioner Vincent Schiraldi at Manhattan Family Court. Created in concert with the Center for Urban Pedagogy and artist Danica Novgorodoff, the guide is intended to explain how Family Court works to any young person who finds him or herself enmeshed in the system. Aside from being incredibly useful, it is a beautiful object -- click here for more photos.
