Campaign for Youth Justice Update During the COVID-19 Crisis
The Campaign for Youth Justice is taking full precautionary measures in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As a result, our staff is currently teleworking and we have postponed all of our in-person meetings and events for the foreseeable future. The safety of our community is of the utmost importance to us. We will follow all health and safety guidelines set forth by local, state and national officials, and will take all measures to ensure our protocols align with those guidelines.
Team CFYJ is available to you as we continue our work of advocating for youth in the adult criminal justice system. We recognize the extraordinary burden this is placing on our families who have loved ones and children who are incarcerated. We are working with other youth justice advocates to collect data and monitor the well being of youth in custody and in supervision, and we are making recommendations for their safe return home.
We again thank you for your understanding and your continued support of CFYJ as we closely monitor this situation, and will share updates and changes to our meeting and event schedule as soon as they are available.
