DSHSlogo_medOn behalf of the Children's Justice Task Force, we would like to welcome you back to Spokane for the 2016 - 24th Annual Children's Justice Conference! The conference will take place May 2-3, 2016 at the Spokane Conference Center in downtown Spokane. We encourage you to join us as we participate in a wide variety of educational experiences and reaffirm our mutual commitment to nurture and protect our most precious commodities, the children, of not only our State, but our Nation.

The Children's Justice Conference provides an unrivaled opportunity for you to share your experiences, expertise, and vision for ending child maltreatment with others who have also dedicated their lives to this outcome; and hopefully leave invigorated and ready to continue your unwavering dedication to eradicating child maltreatment.

The Children's Justice Conference strives to provide an informative and inspirational venue for all participants. Your attendance will be welcome!
