While at AP-LS, she continued her work on the Teaching, Training, and Careers Committee, as well as the Externally Focused Initiative Committee. This year, APLS President Dr. Eve Brank began this initiative to provide service to the community in which the conference was held. Dr. Alexander assisted in bringing 50 local high schoolers to the conference to attend sessions, attend the plenary about Kalief Browder, and have lunch with graduate students. What a great event!

Our lab ventured out to sunny, warm San Diego for the American Psychology-Law Society (AP-LS) Annual Conference. Dr. Alexander presented on the topic of Disproportionate Minority Contact in the Juvenile Justice System. It was graduate student Megan Harrelson's first national conference presentation and she did a fantastic job!
