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.
