Youth First’s newsletter highlighted the Institute’s campaign to close New Jersey’s youth prisons:

Further north, Youth Justice New Jersey launched their campaign to close youth prisons. New Jersey is joining the call for #NoKidsInPrison and telling New Jersey it’s time to close their youth prisons, Hayes and Jamesburg, once and for all. Thank you all for your commitment to remaking our justice system so that young people can find the help and opportunities they need to be successful without being taken away from their communities.
