September 2019: Former Juvenile Lifers, YSRP staff, community partners and loved ones celebrate community at a cookout in West Philadelphia. Photographs graciously provided by Johnny Myers.
Philadelphia’s former Juvenile Lifers and their families and loved ones gathered with YSRP staff and community partners on September 15, 2019 to celebrate one another, to celebrate freedom and to celebrate the power of community. The joy was palpable on a sunny day at Malcolm X Park in West Philadelphia. We are grateful to Philabundance, who fed our community with their delicious catering.
