2011 • 2 years • Juvenile Justice
The Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth supports a network of state-based reform advocates, litigators, families, and allied organizations dedicated bringing an end to life without parole sentencing and other extreme sentences for juveniles. The grant will enable the Campaign to expand its coalition membership and enhance its coordination to protect the progress made by the 2012 Supreme Court decision Miller v. Alabama, which banned mandatory life without parole sentences for juveniles, and support activities to advance other reforms that promote more developmentally-appropriate responses to youth who violate the law.
