New resource center on status offenses

A new resource is available that may be of interest for those teaching "Unit 4: Youth Justice: Exploring the Juvenile Justice System" in the Foundations in Criminal Justice course. The Vera Institute of Justice has launched the new online Status Offense Reform Center (SORC). This site, designed for policymakers and practitioners, has tools and strategies for promoting community-based alternatives to the courtroom. The site can be accessed at http://www.statusoffensereform.org/. Wonderful new resource that supplements available course materials.
