Diversion Excursion: Engaging Prosecutors in Sustainable Diversion Efforts

Past Event
November 16, 2021, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm, Eastern

This virtual roundtable provides participants with basic strategies to initiate collaboration with prosecutors and highlight prosecutor-led programs that are being implemented in diverse jurisdictions across the country. Successful diversion programs require collaborative efforts and engagement from prosecutors, community-based providers, and criminal justice stakeholders. Through authentic engagement between internal and external stakeholders, diversion efforts can help jurisdictions create systemic and sustainable change in their communities. Participants learn directly from prosecutors about meaningful ways for varied system actors to engage with prosecutors to establish and create diversion programming.
