BALTIMORE (AP) — Hundreds of people are expected in Baltimore this week for a conference on the treatment of youth in Maryland courts.
The event starts Monday morning at the Baltimore Convention Center and will explore whether minorities are disproportionately represented in the state’s criminal justice system.
The conference is co-sponsored by the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention and the Family League of Baltimore.
Organizers say more than 350 people are expected to attend.
A separate conference is scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday on Outreach to Special Populations Across Child Serving Systems.
