October is Youth Justice Action Month

This week, President Biden issued an official proclamation recognizing October as Youth Justice Action Month - underscoring the need to transform our approach to youth behavior.

This month, we band together to advance a just system for children and teenagers that rallies alongside youth to protect their childhood and provide them the resources they need to thrive. 

Throughout October we will highlight policies, practices, and actions we can take to better outcomes for our youth and communities.

Check out our page on all things Youth Justice Action Month and take action with us this month. Learn more about:
