October 2020: Urge Lawmakers to Help Protect Justice-Involved Youth by Supporting the Next Recovery Package!
This year, the ongoing public health crisis has required unprecedented coordinated action to contain. As federal, state, and local governments continue to respond to COVID-19 and stem the spread of the virus, it is essential that we keep in mind the impact that this emergency is having on young people, especially those who are at risk of becoming involved with the justice system, or who are already involved with the justice system. The Senate must take important steps to ensure young people are able to return safely to their families during this emergency and pass the HEROES Act through legislature. Take action and share below!
