Congress, fully fund the JJDPA!

April 10, 2018

The JJDPA sets federal standards to ensure a minimum level of safety and equitable treatment for youth who come into contact with the juvenile justice system.

As the Appropriations Committee begins the process for FY 2019, it's important for your representatives to hear from constituents about the importance of funding the JJDPA.

Phone Script:


My name is [friend], and I'm your constituent. I support the JJDPA because it supports our young people and ensures fair and equitable treatment in the Justice System. I am asking that you support fully funding the JJDPA to support young people and improve public safety outcomes.

Thank you,
