Now that the efforts to change the laws regarding juvenile jurisdiction have finally succeeded, we have created a new page on our website specifically for Raise the Age! There is still plenty to be done, and our office is now compiling information about the new law all in one place for your convenience. The Raise the Age page contains summaries of Senate Bill 257, media content created by our office, and links to other resources, including articles from Tamar Birckhead, Professor LaToya Powell, and Campaign for Youth Justice. The new page can be found under the “Information for Defenders” tab. New sections will be added as each part of the new law is implemented and our office develops new plans and training to assist juvenile defenders, so check back often!
