Achieving Justice Means Advocating for Victims as Well as Youth in the System
Our juvenile justice system fails both youth who break the law and the people and communities they harm. Our new policy paper, “A House Divided No More: Common Cause for Juvenile Justice Advocates, Victim Advocates, and Communities,” seeks to dispel several common misperceptions about these youth that get in the way of achieving a safer society and a justice system that is fair and equitable for all.
