COLUMBUS- State Representative Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) will be a featured panelist at this year’s National Conference of State Legislature’s Juvenile Justice Teams’ Meeting, which takes place in Boston, Massachusetts. Hundreds of legislators from across the country are poised to attend this three-day event that highlights important national juvenile justice actions.

The Juvenile Justice State Teams’ Meeting is designed to give lawmakers the opportunity to learn about and discuss current juvenile justice issues with national and local experts, and also to meet as state legislative teams to develop ideas and state action plans.

“I’m honored to be part of such an important discussion. Juvenile justice policy is critical to public safety and producing positive outcomes for youth in Ohio,” said Rep. Fedor. “We must make efforts towards protecting our most vulnerable citizens and making certain they have a bright future.”

Representative Fedor’s landmark legislation H.B. 262, Safe Harbor Act – a victim centered bill aimed at prevention, access to services and prosecution, along with her co-sponsorship on H.B. 86 which made many changes to the criminal and juvenile justice system, makes her uniquely qualified to address Ohio’s successful reforms.
