    In an effort to raise awareness of this issue, a group of Northeastern University students held an event on April 17 titled “Journalism & Juvenile Justice: How Your Sentences Affect Theirs,” a panel discussion that explored the role the media plays in juvenile sentencing reform. It featured several prominent speakers, including former governor Michael Dukakis; crime professor James Alan Fox; communications professor Sarah J. Jackson; Gail Garinger, the child advocate for the state of Massachusetts; juvenile court judge Leslie E. Harris; and Joshua Dohan, director of the youth advocacy division of the Massachusetts Committee for Public Counsel Services.

    The students responsible for organizing the event were Nicholas Fei, Kaitlyn Rhodes, Paula Christovich, Chris Corey, Hilary Gabso, and Kristin Minish. Northeastern journalism professor Dan Kennedy moderated the discussion.
