CJDC Annual Membership

At CJDC, we believe all children and youth should experience adolescence free from over-criminalization in a just society that promotes their well-being and provides second chances. We seek to protect the rights and improve the treatment of children and youth in the juvenile justice system through public advocacy, community organizing, nonpartisan research, and policy development.
