CJCA proudly honored juvenile justice reform leader Laurie Garduque, Director of Justice Reform at the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, at a ceremony in Chicago during its first annual Leadership Institute last week. Laurie received CJCA's Leadership Award for her 22 years' dedication to the youths, leaders, professionals, families and communities involved in juvenile justice systems across the country.

As a long-time colleague of Laurie's, I know her vision, extraordinary leadership and dedication to MacArthur’s Models for Change reform initiative and unwavering commitment to better outcomes for youths, families and communities deserves to be applauded.

Several of Laurie’s colleagues who were in the audience rose to add personal reflections on her cause to create a fair, rational and effective juvenile justice system as well as fond memories of working closely with her.
