Mission

The Campaign for Youth Justice (CFYJ) is a national campaign dedicated to ending the practice of trying, sentencing and incarcerating children under 18 in the adult criminal justice system.  The strategic goals of CFYJ are to reduce the number of youth who are tried, sentenced, and incarcerated in the adult criminal justice system, rather than adjudicated in the juvenile justice system; and to decrease the harmful impact of trying youth in adult court, especially the placement of youth in adult jails and prisons.

Population(s) Served

As part of the Case Profiles Project, we are gathering personal stories from youth prosecuted under 18 in the adult criminal justice system as well as their parents and families. The purpose of collecting these stories is to understand from those most directly affected about their experiences and perspectives on prosecuting children in the adult criminal justice system and their recommendations for change. We hope to establish a platform for families to voice their concerns to policymakers, the public and the media on how policies that prosecute children as adults negatively impact youth, their parents and families. The Case Profiles Project will highlight their voices through reports, policy briefs, publications, newsletters, and here on the website. Please submit your story and make a difference.

Population(s) Served

The National Parent Caucus is a space in which families can come together for support, information and to share ideas. Through this network of families and allies we envision a place for families to give and receive information and experiences, to learn about what works, what doesn’t, what has been tried and succeeded and what has failed. It will be a place to find resources and support and to make strategic decisions about what actions to take to achieve our goals. 

 

Activities:

 

1.      Create and disseminate widely a collective set of principles that ensure the improvement of our children’s lives in the juvenile and criminal justice systems.

2.      Provide support, information and assistance for the individual needs of families and their children.

3.      Provide support, technical assistance, strategic planning and execution of grassroots efforts for reform.

4.      Create a clearinghouse of useful and timely materials on juvenile justice issues and events. 

5.      Engage families in juvenile justice issues on the local level and include them in activities related to federal policies in the best interest of all children.

Population(s) Served

The Campaign for Youth Justice works with youth, parents and their families who are most directly affected by harmful policies that have resulted in thousands of youth prosecuted in the adult criminal justice system and placed in adult jails and prisons every year.  These individuals, along with other experts, participate in CFYJ's National Spokespersons Bureau and are available for interviews with media representatives and other public speaking engagements.
