Our programs & initiatives

We promote the evolution of a fair and compassionate juvenile justice system through policy reform advocacy and systemic-impact litigation.

We are working toward a justice system in Louisiana that draws in fewer children; responds to developmental needs with individualized evidence-based supports; incarcerates children only rarely – and, when it does, treats them with dignity and prepares them for a future of real opportunity; and never resorts to punishment or abandons children to adult jurisdiction.
