On April 20, the Montgomery County Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC) Task Force will host its 3rd Annual Joint Conference on Juvenile Justice at the Austin Peay State University, Morgan University Center, Clarksville TN, on the 3rd floor from 8:30 A.M. – 3:00 P.M.
The conference focuses on the prevention of juvenile delinquency via increasing the awareness of issues, programs and resources available to youth, parents, teachers, college students, advocates, officers of the court, and concerned citizens. The conference is free and open to the public.
The DMC Task Force is a Tennessee government program that operates under the umbrella of the Governor’s office, and includes the Tennessee Commission on Children & Youth & the Austin Peay State University Juvenile Justice Grant.
Last year’s event drew over 20 organizations, 200 youth participates and 85 adult attendees. The booths, presenters and breakout sessions provided education on such subjects as, bullying, gang awareness, and the importance of being a big brother big sister, mentorship and much, much more!
Among last year’s presenters was Rachel’s Challenge. What is Rachel’s Challenge? Rachel Scott was the first person killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. Since her tragic death her parents & friends have traveled the country showing powerful video/audio footage of Rachel’s life and the Columbine tragedy to motivate students and the world to make positive change in the way they treat others. The Challenge is for young people to become advocates for the humane treatment of their fellow man. It goes beyond anti-bullying to fostering respect and tolerance for all those around us. The challenge is to resist the instinct to be quiet in the face of vocal or physical abuse of someone perceived as different. Offering friendship to the overlooked can be very empowering. It can change a person’s sphere of existence. The challenge is to be that element of change.
A U.S. Department of Justice spokesperson will be the special guest speaker.
