Hear legislators, attorneys and other experts conduct an in-depth exploration of four issue areas affecting Texas' children:
Juvenile Justice and Juvenile Mental Health

These talks will be followed in the afternoon, among others, by a discussion on immigration by Claudia Kolker, author of The Immigrant Advantage, and a talk regarding the decriminalization of child-trafficking victims from Ann Johnson, who represented the minor in the 2010 case, In re.
