PPAL Statewide Meetings

December 13, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

“The Dangers of Detention,” with Katherine Perry-Lorentz, Esq.

It is important to understand the real dangers of detention and the data dashboard that follows.

Take a live look at Massachusetts data around the juvenile justice system to understand:

  • How we can divert children from entering detention.
  • The data that shows the children connected to detention
  • The dangers and diversion that is happening in the state.


We encourage you to be open to hearing what is being worked on in the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative (JDAI) in Massachusetts!

PPAL’s Statewide meetings are meant ONLY for parents/caregivers/family members/family partners of children with behavioral health needs. (Peer leaders who work with children and have lived experience are also welcome.)
