The Color of Justice

Minority children enter Connecticut’s juvenile justice system at a higher rate than their white peers and are treated more harshly there. Research shows that these differences aren’t because of how kids behave, but because of the decisions that adults make.

The Color of Justice is a film examining this problem. We’re working on making it a movement as well by organizing forums around the state where ordinary people can be part of the solution.
