Natasha Baker Writes About DC Juvenile Justice Issues

Fellow Natasha Baker (’17) authored an article on Washington, D.C. juvenile justice issues for the UC Davis Journal of Juvenile Law & Policy (“Rehabilitation via Arbitrariness: Why Commitment as a Dispositional Option in Washington, D.C.’s Juvenile Justice System Should Be Abolished,” Nov. 26). “This paper suggests ... ending commitment, one of the dispositions ... youth can receive in the D.C. juvenile justice system,” Natasha wrote. “Commitment is rife with arbitrariness and it funnels poor youth of color into the deep end of the juvenile justice system.”
