Be Part of the "40 for 40" Video Project

July 15, 2014

SparkAction, a collaborative journalism and advocacy platform to mobilize action for and by young people, is working closely with the Act for Juvenile Justice Campaign of the NJJDPC and local organizations across the country to bring together 40 short, concrete and engaging stories that use real lives and real voices to illustrate the policy and systems impact of the Juvenile Justice & Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA).

We are collecting short video stories to display in an interactive grid that will launch in September to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the law. The project is designed to engage, inform and ultimately mobilize support for a meaningful Congressional reauthorization that improves and strengthens this landmark law to support states in designing fairer, more effective local approaches.  Thank you for lending your voice to this collaborative effort!
