FOR YOUTH JUSTICE IN 2020

Ahead of the 2020 election, the National Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Coalition has created a roadmap for transforming our justice system in a way that increases public safety, achieves better outcomes for our children and families, and brings us closer to a legal system that is just and fair for all. The platform embraces policies and laws that will:

1. Reduce youth incarceration;
2. Remove youth from adult courts, jails, and prisons;
3. Invest in youth in their communities;
4. Center Federal youth justice policy on directly-impacted youth and their families;
5. Ensure fairness and equity for justice-involved youth;
6. Improve conditions of confinement for incarcerated youth;
7. Support youths’ successful re-entry from the justice system; and
8. Establish Youth Justice Action Month
