Additionally, consider the following:

  • Educate yourself on the juvenile justice issues facing your local community.
  • Let your voice be heard by being an educated Voter!
  • Push for new legislation that keeps valuable kids from going down the toilet. New legislation that calls for re-opening of juvenile life cases at a certain point (perhaps juvenile life age of 25) to review the facts and make sure the sentence is appropriate, changing it if it isn’t.
