About this Event

We're working to change the narrative of BLACK YOUTH and families who are court involved. Issues include:

*Raise the Age NOW: Join the coalition that passed the law to keep 17 year olds out of adult jails in 2021, but we must begin work now! Join the demand for local officials not to wait until 2012.

*St. Louis City Commission on Youth and Children: Join the demand to restore the St. Louis City Mayor's Office Commission on Children and Youth, and Families; and the immediate hire of a Commissioner of Youth Services.

*Unlock the Vote MO: Let Missourians join Florida and Wisconsin in the movement to return voting rights to 60,000 voters in Missouri who are on probation and parole. Also includes and addendum to update privacy laws for youth who have completed juvenile probation but still experience negative consequences.

Encouraging youth, families, churches, schools and the community to share great stories about black youth using the hashtag: #SeeUsSTL
