We encourage you to become a part of the CFSY’s membership program – Partners for Progress! Partners for Progress is for people who are passionate about racial justice and energized to change the U.S. criminal legal system. The United States is the only country in the world that allows children, mostly Black children and children of color, to be sentenced to die in prison. It’s our mission to change that! We’ve made great progress – a majority of U.S. states currently ban juvenile life without parole sentences – but we need your help to abolish this practice nationwide once and for all. Join Partners for Progress today and be part of the urgent movement.

Partners for Progress invites you to make a monthly gift to the CFSY. Collectively, these contributions provide CFSY the resources to sustain our work to abolish life without parole for children and to ensure that those returning home from these unjust sentences are able to thrive.

Partners for Progress will enjoy:

  • Customized opportunities to be proximate with and get to know CFSY staff and members of our Incarcerated Children’s Advocacy Network;
  • Access to virtual and in-person events, including invite-only events and exclusive swag;
  • Curated communications on the movement to end the extreme sentencing of children and promote self- and community-care; and 
  • Belonging to a like-minded, action-oriented community dedicated to racial justice and equity, and a direct connection to the movement and its members.
