Across the country, minority children are overrepresented in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. This puts these children at greater risk of dropping out of high school and being unemployed, homeless, or incarcerated as adults. In Michigan the state has established disproportionate minority contact reduction efforts to address this problem and approve the lives of young people. The project is supported by grants from the Michigan Committee on Juvenile Justice.
The Results: Michigan disproportionate minority contact data is published annually by the Michigan Committee on Juvenile Justice.
