Youth and Justice Day

Youth and Justice Day

More than 200 students from around the region were in Pasco Friday to learn about potential careers in the justice system.

Several lawyers, judges and corrections officers spoke to the students who come from economically disadvantaged and historically underrepresented communities.

The goal is the promote racial and ethnic diversity in the justice system so that there is a more diverse workforce representing the diversity of the community.

Students spent all day listening to speakers, acting out skits and asking the lawyers and judges questions about their work.

This is the tenth annual Youth and Justice Day. This year it took place at Columbia Basin Community College in Pasco.
