SUPPORT OUR YOUTH! NO NEW PRISONS!
REJECT THE GOVERNOR'S AMENDMENT!

Governor McAuliffe and Virginia’s General Assembly are planning to spend nearly $40 million in taxpayer dollars to build a new prison for youth in Chesapeake. Putting young people in prison does not work and does not make our communities safer. There are more effective ways to hold young people accountable while preparing them for adulthood. For the sake of our youth, the safety of our communities, and the future of our state please SIGN THE PETITION HERE


WHY DO WE ACT? WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?
 New prisons will not produce new outcomes.

By listening to the voices of the youth and families impacted by the system, we can build a system that works for our youth, our communities, our taxpayers, and for the future of Virginia!

The Governor is creating a ‘task-force’ to help decide the future of the Juvenile Justice system in VA...while we support this important move, the task-force should Include Impacted Youth, Families, and Advocates as members AND all task-force meetings should be made open to the public!
