Parent Forums

Calling All Parents… to register and attend the Empowered Parents Forum at the Orange Mound Community Center (2572 Park Avenue, Memphis, TN 38114), on Thursday, November 8, 2018, from 5:00 p.m. until 7:30p.m.

This forum has been designed to inform parents and the community of the adverse effects and negative trajectories caused to children when parents use threats of contacting Law Enforcement and Juvenile Detention and other scare tactic tools to discipline their children. The goal of the Forum is to empower parents with knowledge and resources that will enable them to become better advocates should their children come in contact with law enforcement. Please click on the below link to register online and if you have any questions or concerns, please contact Kimbrell Owens, with Memphis and Shelby County Juvenile Court’s Office at 901.222.0902 or email Kimbrell.Owens@shelbycountytn.gov.
