The sentencing project joins allies to urge federal juvenile justice reforms

The Sentencing Project is an active member of the National Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Coalition and assisted in the writing recommendations to the Obama Administration.   With strong federal leadership, the pace of juvenile justice reforms can be accelerated.
