On October 4, 2015, Fusion released its film Prison Kids: A Crime Against America’s Children. This investigative documentary about the juvenile justice system reflects concerns here in Virginia about the direction of Virginia’s juvenile justice system.
Please come and view the film and be a part of a robust discussion around how to improve the juvenile justice system for kids and the safety of our communities. Also learn how you can be a part of reform efforts in Virginia. Liz Ryan, president and CEO of the national Youth First! Initiative will facilitate the discussion.
This event is sponsored by RISE for Youth, a nonpartisan campaign coalition in support of community-based alternatives to youth incarceration that rehabilitate kids and make our communities safer.
Please RSVP to the event here.
