Florida Race Equity Challenge


What is the Florida Race Equity Challenge?

Florida’s race equity challenge is a web-based experience that will provide collaborative groups with the education and tools to identify and tackle issues related to race, equity, and inclusion (REI) within the juvenile justice system. We will combine passion with action and challenge participants to affect meaningful change. Teams will learn, participate, and compete for statewide recognition.




Advancing Race Equity Through the Elevation of Youth and Family Voice

This series of webinars will highlight the importance of using a race equity lens to build more equitable relationships between our system and families. Together, participants will answer the call to action in both engaging youth and families and advancing our state towards levels of equity within the juvenile justice and interrelated systems of care.
