The Pennsylvania House Judiciary Committee voted to advance HB 1381 today, which YSRP hopes will usher in a more humane era of support and care for youth involved in the criminal legal system.
YSRP is honored to co-sponsor this event, organized by Councilmember Helen Gym. Young people will ask questions of the District Attorney candidates in the form of case scenarios, to avoid stock answers and find out how the candidates would approach real life situations involving youth charged as adults, juvenile lifers, and other cases that relate to YSRP’s work. To RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you there!
