DENVER - The Colorado Collaborative Justice Conference Planning Committee is accepting proposals for breakout session presentations and workshops for the 2020 Colorado Collaborative Justice Conference hosted by the Colorado Judicial Department. 

The conference will take place March 25 – March 27, 2020, in Denver and is a joint effort by the Correctional Treatment Board and the Problem-Solving Courts Program. The goal is to promote collaborative, team-based approaches to treating justice-involved individuals with substance use and co-occurring disorders, and to foster enhanced system-wide inclusivity, equity and cultural competency.

The 2020 conference will build on the general themes of:

· Inclusivity, equity and cultural competency

· Brain Injury

· Trauma-informed practices

· Responsivity

· Treatment matching

· Intersections between mental health and substance abuse in the criminal justice system

· Family centered practices supporting justice-involved individuals

· Rural and frontier programs

The committee is seeking presentation proposals for 75-minute breakout sessions and 150-minute workshops. Proposals will be accepted from any individual, group, institution, or company with an interest in corrections or criminal justice. Proposals are due no later than Oct. 11, 2019 and will be evaluated on a rolling basis with the conference agenda expected to be finalized by Dec. 20, 2019.

Conference attendees will include judges, district attorneys, public defenders and defense attorneys, law enforcement, probation and parole officers, community corrections professionals, problem-solving court coordinators, treatment providers, and policy makers. It is expected that more than 1,000 people will attend the conference. All presenters will be invited to attend the full conference.
