Home > Policies > Youth Justice Week of Action

From February 18 – 22, 2019, youth justice advocates united to support or oppose bills on youth justice reform. To read our positions on each bill, download the legislative package below.

Spreading the Word and Engagement: 
As part of the week, the Day of Action encouraged everyone who supported youth justice reform to wear yellow in solidarity. In addition, an action alert was distributed to encourage supporters to send emails to legislators to support HB606 which creates a Juvenile Justice Reform Council. To see the alert or send a letter by March 15, 2019, click here.

Social media messaging also played a prominent part in the Week. See some examples below.
