“What’s Happening with Juvenile Justice in Oregon”
When: Thursday, January 17, 1:30 to 2:45 p.m.
Where: Lake Oswego United Methodist Church (Music/Choir Room), 1855 South Shore Blvd, Lake Oswego

We’re very pleased that Barbara Ross, a Portland League member and a longtime advocate for criminal justice reform, will be with us to share her expertise on juvenile justice reform in Oregon.  She’ll bring us up to date on recent efforts and let us know what bills she’ll be following in the upcoming legislative session. As you may know, over the years the League has been a staunch advocate of many reform efforts, including an emphasis on community treatment facilities, the diversion of youth from adult facilities, and moving away from mandatory sentencing to give judges greater leeway.

Barbara has had a long and distinguished community service career: hospital social worker, 3 terms as a state representative in the 1990s, 10 years as a Benton County Commissioner, 12 years as a Corvallis school board member—not to mention a term as LWV Corvallis President. She moved to Portland in 2011 and since then has devoted her considerable energies to criminal justice reform on behalf of the League as well as other organizations.

Please join us and bring a friend. This event is open to the public.
