Unfinished Business: Juveniles and Justice conference scheduled for Oct. 4-5

Thanks to additional funding support,  the Center on Media Crime and Justice is able to extend its deadline for applications to John Jay’s juvenile justice reporting fellowships to Sept. 17. 

I wanted to let you know that our application site has been retimed accordingly. Details, applications forms are available here.

Recapping my original note, On Oct 4-5, 2018, we will be organizing a special conference to help journalists cover the latest developments in juvenile justice, and engage with some of the leading players and experts in the field.

The conference, to be held at John Jay’s New York City campus, is called “Unfinished Business: Juveniles and Justice,” and should provide valuable grounding for journalists in your member news outlets, and perhaps give them ideas for new coverage angles. Participating fellows will be chosen on a competitive basis, based on their interests, proposed projects, and editors’ support. The fellowship includes travel to NYC and accommodations.

Please feel free to distribute this information to your member organizations. I’ll happy to answer any of your questions, or you can contact Joe Domanick, our journalism coordinator for the conference at  310-435-4007 or jdomanick@jjay.cuny.edu; or Ricardo Martinez, Project Administrator, at 646-557-4690 or rmartinez@jjay.cuny.edu.
