DMC eNews Reports on DMC Action Network Efforts DMC eNews is an electronic newsletter that reports on how the 12 DMC Action Network sites are reducing racial and ethnic disparities in their juvenile justice systems. The brief newsletter is designed to spread the word about strategic innovations that successfully reduce Disproportionate Minority Contact, or DMC.
The sites in the DMC Action Network are among the leaders in DMC reduction in the United States. Each issue of DMC eNews will include a short feature on an aspect of DMC reduction, a link to a useful resource, a profile of a DMC Action Network site, and a true story that illustrates the successes and lessons learned at these sites.
