Tell the Senate: Support Critical Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Funding

    1. Petition by

      Campaign for Youth Justice

The President’s budget plan is to be applauded for preserving critical juvenile justice and delinquency prevention funding. Federal funding helps support state systems better protect kids and families, and safeguard the public. These investments help keep children out of dangerous, costly lock-ups, where they are at great risk of suicide, sexual and physical abuse, and disconnection from family, positive support, education and the workforce. They also support state delinquency prevention and violence prevention efforts that promote public safety and help young people get back on track. Funding these programs will lead to a brighter, more productive future for our youth and, consequently, for our country.
