Petition: Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act Vote Soon

Friends, the Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing soon to mark up and vote on the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, S. 1169.Petition

The JJDPA is the core of nearly everything the federal government does in Juvenile Justice, but it’s past due for re-authorization. It will require states to keep youth separated from adults prior to trial as well as in prison, strengthen rules on disproportionate minority contact, invest in alternatives to incarceration, and removes an exception that allowed states to put status offenders in prison.

A bipartisan group of Senators, led by Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) are now trying to renew and strengthen it. This is a great bill, and it needs your help today.
