ACTION ALERT: Help Preserve Critical Juvenile Justice Funding!

Join State Strategy Calls to Inform Congressional Leaders


To Our Members and Allies in IL, MD, NV, and VA
As members and allies of the Act 4 Juvenile Justice Campaign, we urge you to please join strategy calls scheduled for On October 14th and 17th, 2011, to help launch the campaign to restore federal juvenile justice funds. 

Any day now, Congress will make important decisions about funding critical programs that prevent delinquency, protect children from the dangers of adult jails and prisons, and keep communities safe.  Cuts of 60-90% are now being considered.  Deep cuts to federal support that support state and local juvenile justice and delinquency prevention efforts will hurt kids, and families, while also jeopardizing public safety.  Cuts of this magnitude will result in more children in dangerous, costly lock-ups, and disconnection from family, positive support, education and the workforce. 
  
To restore critical protections for children, youth and community safety, Act4JJ is launching a four state campaign to inform Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA), Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and the Obama Administration of our grave concerns. We are urging Congress to reject the House funding levels for juvenile justice and support the President’s revised proposal of $172 million, which is $10 million more than the FY11 appropriation.   For the safety of youth, families and communities, we must not accept anything less than the Senate FY12 proposal of $108 million. 

Maryland Members and Allies – October 14, 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time Zone
Virginia Members and Allies – October 14, 3:30 p.m.  Eastern Time Zone
Nevada Members and Allies – October 17, 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time Zone
Illinois Members and Allies – October 17, 2:00 p.m. Central Time Zone

To participate in your state’s call, please RSVP to andrews@juvjustice.org.  The call-in information is as follows: phone # 866-846-3997 and enter passcode 589997.
