2018 CJJ National DMC Conference Sponsor/Exhibitor Application

Introduction

 
Every two years, CJJ hosts a conference focusing specifically on the issue of disproportionate minority contact (DMC) in the juvenile justice system. These conferences give juvenile justice stakeholders from around the country an opportunity to share strategies and explore solutions to this serious problem. This year’s conference will bring together stakeholders working to fight disparities at the local, state, and national levels, as well as the larger juvenile justice community. For more information about CJJ, please visit www.juvjustice.org.

CJJ’s 2018 National DMC Conference will focus on ways that young people and their communities, as well as law enforcement, court officials, advocacy groups, and State Advisory Groups can work together to combat racial and ethnic disparities (RED). Specifically, the conference will focus on:
 
  • What changes can be made at the system’s front end to reduce DMC?
  • How can youth advocates, law enforcement, attorneys, the judiciary, and community leaders work together to combat the crisis?
  • What role does data collection play in eliminating RED, and how can collection be improved?

The primary goal of CJJ’s 2018 National DMC Conference is to help system stakeholders--including policymakers and state DMC Coordinators--combat DMC through peer-to-peer learning, and expert training. Workshop sessions will provide participants a hands-on opportunity to explore solutions that have been shown to work in other jurisdictions.
 
CJJ invites you to consider sponsoring our 2018 National DMC Conference on November 27-30 in Baltimore, Md.  Your sponsorship is an easy and affordable way to promote your program, publication, or institution to a targeted professional audience while supporting CJJ’s continuing efforts towards juvenile justice reform and leadership development.  Sponsorship dollars help support a broad range of necessary functions, including materials production, speaker and workshop support, youth engagement, and other general functions. 
 
This year, CJJ also has a limited number of exhibitor spaces available on November 28 and 29. Exhibiting at the National DMC Conference allows your organization an even greater opportunity to reach CJJ’s members and partners.  The Exhibit Hall is located in a prime location, ideally situated alongside the conference registration areas and outside of the general session and breakout rooms. 
 
Each sponsorship or exhibitor level includes a CJJ membership (various restrictions apply, based on the level of support). Please click here for more information about the benefits provided with CJJ membership. Additional information about sponsorships and exhibiting are below. CJJ reserves the right to only accept exhibitors or sponsors whose work is in line with our core principles.
