WASHINGTON (March 18, 2019) -- The Campaign for Youth Justice (CFYJ) is happy to announce our new podcast , “The Voices of Juvenile Justice”, which highlights youth who have been prosecuted or sentenced as adults in the criminal justice system.
CFYJ is a national initiative focused on ending the practice of prosecuting, sentencing, and incarcerating youth under the age of 18 in the adult criminal justice system. In order to assist in our mission of ending youth incarceration, this podcast was created to share information on a different platform. The purpose of this podcast is to share the stories of parents and previously incarcerated youth, as well as to inform listeners on how states are combating youth incarceration through reform.
This podcast will feature various guests with first-hand experience in the adult criminal justice system, and experts in the field. The podcast will cover a range of subject matter surrounding the criminal justice system and individuals who have been affected by youth incarceration. Topics discussed include: racial disparities within the system, transfers from juvenile facilities to adult courts, lack of early intervention, the effect on parents of incarcerated youth, and solitary confinement.
