When you vote for the Campaign for Youth Justice you’re helping to keep juveniles out of adult courts, and jails.
The Campaign for Youth Justice, works as a clearinghouse of information to advocate against and raise awareness of youths being prosecuted in the adult criminal justice system. They work on the federal and state levels to change laws for the benefit of at-risk youth. The outcome can often end in the children getting the
rehabilitation services they need within the juvenile court system. By keeping at-risk youths out of the adult system they not only save them from felony charges that could follow them around for a lifetime, but also increase their odds of becoming productive, successful adults. A vote from you can help them continue their advocacy work.
Every year a quarter of a million children in the U.S. are tried in the adult criminal justice system. The Campaign for Youth Justice works to have these children tried in the juvenile system where they’ll have access to much needed rehabilitation services.
