July 2020: Make Sure Young People In the Justice System Aren't Overlooked in the Next Recovery Package!
In recent months, a public health crisis has unfolded across our country which will require unprecedented actions to contain. As federal, state, and local governments plan their responses to COVID-19 and attempt to slow the spread of the virus, it is essential that we keep in mind the impact that this emergency is having on young people, including those who are at risk of becoming involved with the justice system, or who are already involved with the justice system, particularly those who are locked behind bars. The next recovery package must take important steps to ensure young people are able to return safely to their families during this emergency. Take action and share below!
