Hidden Injustice: LGBT Youth in Juvenile Courts

Hidden Injustice, published by the Equity Project, a collaboration of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, Legal Services for Children, and the National Juvenile Defender Center, represents the first effort to examine the experiences of LGBT youth in juvenile courts across the country. Drawing from first-hand accounts of more than 50 LGBT youth and in-depth interviews of more than 60 juvenile justice professionals, this groundbreaking report sheds light on the numerous barriers to fair and effective treatment of court-involved LGBT youth. Hidden Injustice is an invaluable resource for anyone who is committed to pursuing a fair and just juvenile delinquency system where all youth are treated with dignity, fairness, and respect.
