Federal Juvenile Justice Funding

 

Take Action!

Deep federal funding cuts to state and local juvenile justice and delinquency prevention efforts will hurt kids, and families, and jeopardize public safety. Cuts of this magnitude will result in more children in dangerous, costly lock-ups, greatly increasing risks of suicide, sexual and physical abuse, and disconnection from family, positive support, education and the workforce.

Tell Congress to protect children in the justice system by rejecting deep cuts to juvenile justice funding!
