Fair Treatment

Why It Matters

The more protective factors a youth is exposed to, the lower their chances of committing youth violence or gang involvement.
The health and welfare of Georgia’s at-risk children depend on their staying in school and out of court. Georgia has experienced a 57% reduction in short-term secure confinement of youth since 2014, thanks to effective evidence-based therapies that are helping many court-involved children avoid future criminal misbehavior. Having successfully advocated for a long-overdue update of Georgia’s juvenile code, we are now taking a proactive approach to keep kids out of the juvenile justice system altogether.
