CFSY National Convening

Philly Strong: Onward from the Epicenter of Hope

November 8 – 10, 2021

Philadelphia, PA

Our Convening brings together directly impacted leaders, family members of those given extreme sentences as youth, survivors of violence, legislators, corporate partners, attorneys, and supporters from around the country to join as one community for learning, growth, healing, and collective joy.

Philadelphia, a city notorious for imposing life sentences on scores of children, is now home to many of those same individuals who are rebuilding their lives and are leaders in their communities. Our Convening will include visits to a gallery showing art by formerly life-sentenced children, a horse farm dedicated to healing and growth, and local food and sights.

The CFSY is committed to our community’s health and safety; we are closely following the CDC’s Covid-related guidelines. Due to these guidelines, attendance will be limited to invited guests. If you would like to join us and did not receive an invitation, please contact Anna Melbin at to learn more.

Registration is not yet open. We encourage you to check back often for updates.
