Juvenile Justice Board discusses rising gun violence, issues call to action


More than two years after their last in-person meeting, members of the Juvenile Justice Board gathered on the campus of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center Tuesday, June 7, to “reintroduce” the board to community members and to discuss the rising youth gun violence in the city.

State Rep. Torrey Harris moderated the panel discussion with panelists Altha Stewart, MD, senior associate dean for Community Health Engagement and director of the UTHSC Center for Youth Advocacy and Well-Being; Juvenile Court Judge Dan Michael; and Deputy Chief of Security for Memphis-Shelby County Schools Gregory Sanders.
