In this century of changing demographics and policy and system reform, this year's National Organization of Forensic Social Work (NOFSW) conference will feature inter-professional learning opportunities on how to integrate cultural competence with justice in clinical, organizational, community, and policy practice. This year's conference will advance a new century of cultural justice, dignity, respect, and acceptance for all persons. Many forensic populations, such as racial and ethnic minorities, at-risk youth, the elderly, veterans, immigrants, LGBTQ persons, persons with disabilities, or those living in poverty or communities of violence often lack access to quality services and cultural justice. Conferences attendees will increase their knowledge, values, and skills for working with forensic populations in healthcare, social service, and legal settings, including the courts and corrections.
