Juvenile Justice #InvestInYouth

Putting our children behind bars has drastic negative implications. The current juvenile justice system does not allow youth to heal trauma or have the opportunity to thrive in life. In collaboration with Dignity In Schools, APYD is fighting to keep our kids out of jail and demanding that we start to invest in services and programs that improve positive outcomes for all youth. Follow us on social media to learn more about our demands and how you can help.
