We can do better. Over the past three weeks we shared with you the problem of putting Maryland’s youth in adult jails, the solution, and what the proposed system will look like when the policy change to hold all youth charged as adults in juvenile detention centers before trial is implemented.
Please join Just Kids to make this solution a reality. Here are ways you can help us to ensure Maryland makes this critical change:
