Call on Your Senators to Fund Youth Justice Improvements!

Congress is still working to set government spending levels for fiscal year 2020, through the appropriations process. The U.S. House of Representatives has completed its appropriations bills, and the Senate is working on its version. Please take a minute to call and urge your Senators to fully fund the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act. States need these funds to improve justice approaches, protect youth and promote safer communities.

Contact Your Senators: Tell Them It's Time to Get This Done!

The JJDPA sets basic standards and protections for youth in state juvenile justice programs, and it's back on the table in 2017. The House has already passed its bill, and now we call on the Senate to get this done in 2017!

This week, we are calling on Senate leadership, Leader McConnell (R-KY) and Chairman Grassley (R-IA) to make JJDPA reauthorization a priority. We are also calling on Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) to release his hold.
