The Delores Barr Weaver Policy Center
Opened in 2013, the Policy Center integrates political science, research and social science strategies to advance the rights of girls and young women impacted by the juvenile justice system in Florida. The core activities of the Policy Center are research, model programming, advocacy and training/technical assistance. Rigorous research, rooted in the lived experiences of girls and young women, inform all initiatives of the Policy Center. Direct service model programming provides prevention, court diversion, treatment, residential and re-entry services for girls and their families/caregivers at any point along the justice continuum. The Policy Center advocates for individual girls and young women already in the justice system to prevent their deeper system involvement. At the State level, the Policy Center advocates for legislation to remedy policies and practices that result in the disparate treatment of girls. The Policy Center has been recognized by Georgetown Law Review and PBS NewsHour Weekend as a national model for justice reform work.
The Delores Barr Weaver Policy Center engages communities, organizations and individuals through quality research, community organizing, advocacy, training and model programming to advance the rights of girls and young women, especially those in the justice system.
