Resources

These resources are intended to provide sample advocacy materials, research, and model policies to juvenile justice agencies and advocates seeking to enhance dignity, respect, and fairness for LGBT youth in the juvenile justice system.

The Equity Project Resources tab includes publications from the Equity Project.

Other Resources includes various publications from others, such as relevant law review articles, case law, practice tips, research, and reports.
