This daylong conference uses a recent legal case that occurred in Portland, Oregon to highlight how young people marginalized through sexuality and race are targeted. Conference presenters describe the relationship between youth, marginalization, the Prison Industrial Complex and technology, followed by a world-premier screening of the mini-documentary film, “Unlawful Justice: The Story of Antjuanece and Jolene”.
The screening is followed by a panel discussion of leading attorneys who work on the national front lines of LGBT law. This conference concludes with a local organizing session about how young people, activists, and scholars can network to keep young people safe in the nexus of education, technology, justice and constructions of racialized sexuality.
