“The RED Certificate program at Georgetown University was an incredible opportunity and learning experience. I appreciated receiving the full spectrum of national data and learning about specific jurisdictions that have successfully implemented changes in their system to increase fairness and address disparity. Our team was provided with all the tools and information necessary to 'do something' to effectuate change in our local juvenile justice system." - Lori Griggs, Chief Probation Officer, State of Nebraska

"What an intensive, enriching weeklong experience. At times I felt overwhelmed, but in a positive way. So much to learn, so much opportunity for improvement in the lives of youth in my community. I left feeling an awesome burden, but with so many ideas and resources to begin the journey and enlistment of others on this journey, including my RED family." - Malrie Shelton, Project Director, Defending Childhood Initiative Network for Overcoming Violence and Abuse
