Arte Público Press presents Latino Young Men and Boys in Search of Justice: A My Brother’s Keeper Forum
Three acclaimed authors - Luis J. Rodríguez, Javier O. Huerta and Henry A. J. Ramos - will speak at the Latino Young Men and Boys in Search of Justice: A My Brother’s Keeper Forum. Participants will explore the unique challenges faced by Houston’s young Latino men along with successful approaches to improving positive outcomes.
The forum will feature sessions for local youth and adults who work with at-risk students. The panels for young people will focus on identity, others’ perceptions of them, and goal-setting. The panels for adults involved with youth will look into the effect of zero tolerance policies, restorative justice practices, and examples of culturally grounded restorative justice practices being used successfully in Houston and around the country.
