Social Justice | Youth & Children
Please join us for a panel conversation addressing the inequities faced by our youth and children in both the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Panelists include Robert Listenbee, First Assistant District Attorney, and Susan Mangold, CEO of the Juvenile Law Center.
Robert Listenbee currently serves as First Assistant District Attorney at the Philadelphia Office of the District Attorney, where he is bringing his expertise and experience working at the local, state, and national levels on juvenile and criminal justice issues to this newly created position.
In 2013, Bob was appointed by President Barack Obama as Administrator of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, serving in this position until January 2017. During his tenure as Administrator, Bob focused on three overarching priorities: addressing the core protections outlined in the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Act; reducing out-of-home-placements; and reforming the nation’s juvenile justice system so that it utilizes a developmental, trauma-informed approach with a focus on evidence-based practices and programs.
Bob holds a BA from Harvard University and a JD from the University of California, Berkeley.
Susan Mangold is Chief Executive Officer at Juvenile Law Center, the country’s first children’s rights legal office working on behalf of youth in the child welfare and justice systems. She is Professor Emeritus at State University of New York at Buffalo Law School where she taught for over 20 years with a focus on child welfare law and served as Vice Dean for Academics. Mangold is a graduate of Harvard College where she co-chaired the Big Brother/Big Sister Program, then founded Cambridge Youth Enrichment Program (now Summer Urban Program) so the little brothers and sisters would have educational and recreational programs in the summers. She is also a graduate of Harvard Law School where she was Executive Director of Harvard Legal Aid and co-founder of the Children’s Rights Project.
