Juvenile Law Center Kicks Off Second Chance Month
Over one million cases involving youth are heard by our juvenile courts annually. Youth need experienced, dedicated advocates to fight for them in courts, legislatures, and city halls.
Solitary confinement is nothing short of state-sanctioned child abuse. Strip searches and shackling are inhumane. No child deserves this treatment.
Over 415,000 youth are in foster care, and around 20,000 young adults “age out” of care without permanent family connections. They deserve better from the institutions meant to support them.
