How Los Angeles County Expanded Youth Diversion

This blogpost highlights a new guide from Los Angeles County that describes how community outrage over youth incarceration and overcriminalization led activists and practitioners to transform the way the legal system responds to young people in trouble with the law. The guide tells the story of community collaboration on a plan to systematically steer youth in Los Angeles County away from the legal system at the point of arrest or into community-based services in lieu of formal court processing.
