Justice for Families (J4F) is a national alliance of local organizations committed to ending the youth incarceration epidemic. J4F was founded and run by parents and families who have experienced the juvenile justice system with their children.
Research demonstrates that children who have gotten into trouble with the law fare better when supported by non-criminal justice systems and when their families are allowed to support them. Today, juvenile justice systems lock down poor youth and youth of color — tracking them toward adult prisons while locking out their families from the decisions that drive youth further along the ‘school-to-prison’ pipeline.
J4F works toward two primary goals: 1) to transform how juvenile justice systems operate so that families have voice and power in both how and what decisions are made and 2) move resources away from youth incarceration toward direct investments in the youth, families, and communities most harmed by these policies.
Join J4F on Thursday 2/21 at 8:00 pm for a free webinar on how to support your incarcerated loved ones. During the webinar, Justice for Families will offer tips and advice from families who’ve been there on protecting your loved one’s well-being and maintaining family connection while they’re inside.
