Congress, fully fund the JJDPA!

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:

Hi,

Tell Rep. Culberson to fully fund the JJDPA!

Rep. John Culberson is the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, and Science of the House Appropriations Committee. This subcommittee is responsible for allocating funds to programs within the Department of Justice, including the JJDPA. 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.
