Juvenile Justice Reform
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
Over 1 million children under the age of 18 are being unjustly sentenced in the modern day justice system. These children are being tried as adults. The re-authorization of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA) will protect minors from being incarcerated as adults. The re-authorization of this bill will cut down the amount of children in adult jails and will provide an alternative to incarceration. Improving the funding will provide these individuals with services that will help them stay out of jail, as well as assist them after being liberated.
Please sign this petition to help re-authorize the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act!
