YSRP staff gathered on February 1, 2023, to celebrate freedom and commemorate the 7th anniversary of the landmark Montgomery v. Louisiana US Supreme Court decision with former Juvenile Lifers, advocates, and movement leaders.
On the 3-year anniversary of the momentous Montgomery v. Louisiana US Supreme Court decision, former juvenile lifers and their loved ones gathered with YSRP staff and our partners in the field to celebrate freedom. Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner was in attendance to share remarks about the incredible promise of freedom that his office, in part, has helped make possible for the more than 150 juvenile lifers who have returned home since January 2016. We are grateful to our hosts, The HIVE at Spring Point, for generously providing a beautiful space for our community to gather. Click on any photograph to view the full gallery.
