Collaborative Initiatives


Strong partnerships and collaborations are important in any kind of advocacy and reform work. NJDC is proud to work with a large number of national, state, and local organizations on a variety of issues, that would be too numerous to list here, but which are integral to the success of our work. However, there are several official larger-scale collaborations to which NJDC is a part. Below is a list of some of these collaborative initiatives:

NJDC also maintains many close partnerships with other groups, projects, and networks dedicated to advancing juvenile defense education and policy, such as the MacArthur Cross-Action Network, the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative (JDAI), the Juvenile Defense Special Initiative, the Juvenile Indigent Defense Action Network (JIDAN), and Juvenile Justice Geography, Policy, Practice & Statistics (JJGPS) project of the National Center for Juvenile Justice.
