MAINE RISING Summit Materials
The Recommendations Report, along with the Executive Summary, represent the work of the Juvenile Justice Task Force up to this point and were the two documents used for discussion at the MAINE RISING Juvenile Justice Summit. They have now been incorportated into the Task Force Report.
