Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ)

Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) CJJ works to prevent youth from becoming involved in the courts and to uphold the highest standards of care when youth are charged and enter the justice system.

The Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) is a nationwide coalition of State Advisory Groups (SAGs) and allies that envisions a nation where fewer children are at risk of delinquency; and if they are at risk or involved with the justice system, they and their families receive every possible opportunity to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.

Lady pal of mine named Lauren Braden is a paralegal, a brilliant one trained by top attorneys, that offered to do legal work for prisoners cheap. Will you put the word out? Anyone in need of legal services couldn't do better. https://www.facebook.com/Bradenvalladares/
Please like and follow this page, not asking for anything but that. It is not a page with heavy traffic. Followers are needed to help this family get resources they have desperately needed for almost 30 years to find their son. Please and thank you. https://www.facebook.com/In-Search-of-Randy-Leach-1692062907762863/?ref=page_internal
If we should go to war, guess who will be on the front lines? Our youth. Work to save our youth and to prepare them for leadership in our society - no matter what the calling may be.
