Advocate for Change!

You don’t need to be a parent or juvenile directly affected by the system to speak out about juvenile justice. Any concerned citizen can take action to help all children, and work to stop the damage done by prosecuting and punishing them as adults. It isn’t simply the youth and their families that are hurt, but our society as a whole suffers when age-inappropriate sentencing for youthful indiscretions destroys a future. This section contains resources to help you advocate for change — including a list of current campaigns by state, a listing of your state contacts and information on making a donation.
