This week, the Senate Appropriations Committee will be making federal funding decisions for critical juvenile justice programs. Please call your Senator today! Enter your Zip Code to get the phone number and talking points.
Urge your Senator to support funding for the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA) and related juvenile justice programs. The JJDPA sets federal standards for state juvenile justice systems and has helped states reduce juvenile crime and delinquency. Congress must continue to provide the resources needed for states and localities to implement the law and related programs that reduce crime and support better outcomes for young people.
