FFLIC believes in a world without youth prisons. But we also recognize that as we take steps to get there, some of those steps might involve requiring better standards for youth who are currently incarcerated. We support House Bill 746, which would take a step towards justice by limiting the use of solitary confinement in youth prisons, and we're really pleased to see this bill advancing! Celebrate the wins! #NoMorePrisons

We know the system is corrupt and rife with violence and abuse. Yet our leaders turn a blind eye to what’s happening to our youth. It’s past time to implement the solutions we know work Governor John Bel Edwards #Act125 #carenotcages

To transform our youth justice system, we must continue to advocate for the closure of youth prisons and stop the building of new ones, and the Juvenile Justice Reform Act Implementation Commission (JJRAIC) is key to change. In the upcoming weeks we will provide more information on the agenda and how to join the next meeting, which is scheduled for June 10, 2022.
