The Compassion, Mercy, and Justice department of the ECC recently forwarded us an email about a great organization devoted to justice. Justice for Families (J4F) is a national alliance of local organizations working to end our nation’s youth incarceration epidemic. J4F is eager to find ways to connect with faith communities. The organization recently released the detailed report, “Families Unlocking Futures: Solutions to the Crisis in Juvenile Justice.” 

This report presents data that has never been examined before. It aims to correct misperceptions about system-involved youth and their families; demonstrates the need for families’ active participation in redesigning juvenile justice systems; and uncovers crucial flaws in the system that burden, alienate and exclude families from the treatment of system-involved youth.

You can download the report on the J4F website. If you’re interested in learning more about Justice for Families and the work that they do, check out their website, or email grace@justice4families.org.
