We're happy to announce the release of our newest site working with New York organizations around the criminal justice system, civil and social rights, and youth. The Raise the Age New York campaign urges reform:
The legal process must respond to all children as children and services and placement options must meet the rehabilitative needs of all children and youth. A comprehensive approach to raising the age of criminal responsibility in New York State is in the best interest of New York’s children and youth, communities and community safety, as well as the state’s economy.Read more about our work on the Raise the Age NY campaign in our portfolio entry. As always, we are proud to continue our mission serving advocacy initiatives and criminal justice reform and we are thankful to be of service to these important organizations.
