HB 217 will be brought up for a vote THIS Wednesday, April 10th TAKE ACTION
Apr 8, 2013 — Youth justice allies - Thank you for your continued efforts to oppose HB 217. The sponsors of the bill will ask for a VOTE on HB 217 this Wednesday, 4/10 at 10am in room 421 LOB in Raleigh, NC. We urge you to attend the hearing and to spread the word!
Today, your actions can prevent this detrimental bill from moving forward. Please call the committee members and let them know:
I oppose section 7, of HB 217. North Carolina MUST maintain judicial discretion over transfer cases affecting kids. The decision to transfer a kid to the adult criminal justice system is life altering and should be left in the hands of a judge. Say no to section 7, of HB 217!
Keep fighting for people power!
