Senator Boxer - Please Co-Sponsor the Youth PROMISE Act!

This petition had 122 supporters

California Senator Barbara Boxer has expressed to her constituents a willingness to co-sponsor S. 435 - the Youth PROMISE act - as a visionary approach to reducing  youth violence and keeping at-risk youth out of the criminal justice system. We need the help of the community to convince Senator Boxer to officially sign on and make Youth PROMISE a reality.

The Youth PROMISE Act is a bipartisan bill that funds and implements the best policy recommendations to reduce youth crime and violence through proven prevention and intervention practices, such as mentoring and after-school programs. The bill targets communities with the highest rates of youth crime and gang activity and empowers local communities with control over the use and oversight of resources, while holding communities accountable for their funding through measurement of cost, savings and effectiveness.

1) Sign the petition below to send Senator Boxer an e-mail asking for her co-sponsorship of S. 435.

2) Follow-up with a call to thank Senator Boxer for her willingness to sign onto S. 435 and ask her to officially co-sponsor the bill.
