Abstract: 

This report from the National Girls Initiative summarizes a roundtable discussion that included advocates and policymakers representing the communities of violence against women and juvenile justice reform for girls. The discussion focused on the unintended consequences and impact of mandatory and pro-arrest domestic violence policies on females and the disproportionate impact on communities of color. This report presents the roundtable's shared principles and identifies areas of future policy and practice reform through collaboration among the different advocacy communities
