Lock Arms To Unlock Our Kids Rally

The people have spoken unequivocally:

Do not build a youth prison in Newark.

Or anywhere else in New Jersey.

We do not need more youth prisons.

Join us to urge Governor Murphy to halt New Jersey’s plans to invest $160 million in building three new youth prisons in NJ to incarcerate kids, and instead to make substantial financial and other reparative and restorative investments in creating a system that builds up kids.

And let's lift our voices to support the introduction of historic youth justice legislation.
