Youth Justice Work Group Funders Call

The Youth Justice Work Group of YTFG invites you to a conference call for funders on Thursday, May 18th at 1pm ET / 10am PT. Featuring Xavier McElrath-Bey of the Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth, Marsha Levick of the Juvenile Law Center, and Lauren Fine and Joanna Visser Adjoian of the Youth Sentencing & Reentry Project. We will hear from advocates and funders working to end extreme sentencing for youth, including Juvenile Life Without Parole. In addition to updates on current efforts related to policy, litigation and mitigation, we will also discuss how the work is helping to shift narratives, build alliances, and connect to other justice reform efforts.  The call will be moderated by Sarah Baker of the Open Society Foundations. Email Carrie Rae Boatman at carrierae@ytfg.org to RSVP for the call.
