Criminal Justice Reform

Seldom includes the voices of the youth. We are in the process of putting together a youth criminal justice reform council comprised of high school juniors and seniors as well as college students to gain insight on how they’d like to see the criminal justice system work for them!
Our latest elections have been met with much voter apathy and low turnout, particularly by marginalized citizens. Many feel that their voices aren’t valuable and are rarely heard, therefore we are starting a “Your Vote Matters" campaign to raise political consciousness and voter participation within the community.
