The Flawed Juvenile Justice System That Sparked a National Outrage

Last summer, ProPublica, The Detroit Free Press, and The Bridge Michigan reported on the story of Grace, a Michigan teen who was sent to a detention center for months for not doing online coursework. After her case sparked a national outcry, she was released and her case dismissed.

In this digital event moderated by ProPublica reporter Jodi S. Cohen, Grace joins a panel of experts to talk about Michigan’s juvenile justice system, in which judges routinely lock children up for noncriminal offenses like disobeying their parents or skipping school. They discuss the problems, potential paths for change and take audience questions.

Other Speakers:
— Elizabeth T. Clement, Michigan Supreme Court Justice
— Duaa Eldeib, ProPublica reporter
— Sylvia Santana, Michigan senator
— Eli Savit, Washtenaw County prosecutor
— Frank Vandervort, University of Michigan Law School professor
