Our Children are Running out of Time:

Reauthorize the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act Now!


Congress has just 13 days to move forward fundamental federal juvenile justice legislation that will protect our most vulnerable children. Help keep children out of adult jails, end the over-incarceration of youth of color in the justice system, and devote more resources to effective juvenile justice programs that protect our young people and keep our communities safe.

Reauthorization of this important law is nearly 4 years overdue and Congress is scheduled to adjourn on October 8, leaving just 13 days for them to act. 
Children and teens already caught up in the system can't wait another day.

Urge Congress to pass a reauthorization of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act this year by signing the petitions below:
·         Sign the House of Representatives Petition
·         Sign the Senate Petition 
Help us reach our goal of over 15,000 signatures by the end of September by forwarding this Action Alert to your networks.
