Juvenile Justice Month of Faith and Healing
March is Juvenile Justice Month of Faith and Healing. This annual observance provides opportunities for faith communities to join with advocates, directly impacted individuals and others in the effort to address needs related to the ways in which we hold children accountable when they are convicted of crimes.
Begun by the Healing Justice Coalition as a week-long event, Juvenile Justice Month of Faith and Healing provides people interested in the reforming the justice system with opportunities for education, conversation and action. The Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth partners with individuals and organizations to raise the impact of the issue.
