Youth Justice Action Month 2017 – “Art, Activism, Advocacy"
October has been Youth Justice Awareness Month (YJAM) since 2008. Last year, it became Youth Justice ACTION Month! During YJAM, people across the country organize events that raise awareness, strengthen coalitions, build campaigns, and encourage action to keep children out of the adult criminal justice system. This year we are focusing on the arts and the infinite variety of creative ways artistic expression can inspire action. Sign up now to get involved and see how you can use your own creativity to reform youth justice!
