Journal for Advancing Justice

National Association of Drug Court ProfessionalsThis new journal from the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP)—funded by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance—provides justice and public health professionals, policymakers, academics, scholars, and researchers with a forum for sharing evidence-based and promising practices on the most pressing issues facing the justice system today. Released at the 2018 NADCP Annual Training Conference, the journal’s inaugural volume is dedicated to “Identifying and Rectifying Racial, Ethnic, and Gender Disparities in Treatment Courts.” The six scholarly articles presented in Volume I include cutting-edge findings from the largest multisite studies conducted to date on disparities in treatment courts. In addition, outcomes are reported from experimental and quasi-experimental evaluations of culturally proficient interventions designed to neutralize barriers faced by some racial and ethnic groups in treatment courts and blunt the piercing impact of racial discrimination and implicit cultural biases.
