CFSY Youth Justice Advocate Xavier McElrath-Bey accepts a surprise award at the 2015 Healing & Hope Awards reception. The Incarcerated Children’s Advocacy Network (ICAN) Healing & Hope Award recognized Xavier’s leadership in building a national network of formerly incarcerated youth and helping to shift the narrative about children who have spent time in prison. Xavier’s work is helping to demonstrate the accuracy of his motto “no child is born bad.”
