Juvenile Justice DA Candidate Forum

Posted by Public Citizens for Children and Youth on May 1, 2017

The District Attorney has enormous influence over the futures of our children and youth–especially the thousands who are impacted by our justice system each year.

Join us at this important forum specifically focused on the DA and juvenile justice. We’re going to cover a lot of ground and ask the DA candidates to go on the record about where they stand when it comes to our young people. We’ll be asking about mandatory minimums, charging youth as adults, diversion programs, police in schools, child trafficking, and much more.

Thank you to partners Councilman Kenyatta Johnson, Juvenile Law Center, Education Law Center, Philadelphia Student Union, Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY), Defender Association of Philadelphia, Black Clergy of Philadelphia and Vicinity, Youth Sentencing & Reentry Project, Support Center for Child Advocates, The University Community Collaborative, Philadelphia Youth Commission and The Youth Art & Self-empowerment Project.
