YSRP’s Lauren Fine joined Rep. Rabb, Josh Glenn of YASP, and Secretary of Pardons Brandon Flood in a PennLive Town Hall on March 23, 2021 about the need to stop charging children as adults in PA.
YSRP’s Co-Directors Lauren Fine and Joanna Visser Adjoian were profiled as “Fearless Children’s Lawyers of the Month” by the American Bar Association on March 19, 2021. In the article, they share the unshakeable truths that led them to launch YSRP seven years ago, and that persist today. Lauren states:
“If the [legal] system respected the value and dignity of young people, it wouldn’t be a system that incarcerates children.” Joanna agrees: “We as a nation are addicted to caging primarily Brown and Black children and we need to address that addiction.”
