Our families are burdened with not just the court fees, but also the mounting costs of transportation for visitations and phone calls just to be in touch with their children. We can't continue to allow these systems to separate our families! If you know of parents struggling to stay connected with their incarcerated children, please contact us!

“There is no reason to trust OJJ will be able to provide the necessary educational services to youth at Angola, since they have been failing on every level to meet their responsibilities to provide adequate services, care, and protection to youth in their own facilities.” Gina Bennett Womack, FFLIC Executive Director and Co-Founder
We must stop the Governor's plan to move kids to Angola! Sign the petition at https://bit.ly/NoKidsInAngola

Unless maybe they are forced to get a brain transplant (think Get Out), our kids CAN NOT process information or make decisions like adults. Their brains are not fully developed. #LetKidBeKids.

How we can blame youth for our failures to provide them with the education, mental health services, and supports they need? #LetKidsBeKids #NoMorePrisons https://t.co/evhSiPAnzu

How can adults expect more from young people than we expect of ourselves? Support our efforts to give system-impacted youth a #secondchance by sharing about our #DebtFreeJustice campaign. @ProgenyICT @aundrelarrow @marcusejarvis https://t.co/JJQOh3FRsW
As often as our media and policymakers try to make it seem like our Black and brown youth are to blame, this video proves otherwise. Lawmakers have failed to fulfill the promises of #Act1225 of 2003. #LetKidsBeKids https://t.co/QQtaaVVJXm

With ongoing crises throughout state youth facilities, OJJ should be attempting to seek better credentialed applicants or more thoroughly train existing staff, but instead they want to lower hiring requirements in the worst possible way! https://t.co/r8C8i2GCO5
Moving youth to Angola has national implications as the superpredator myth is used to criminalize Black and brown youth. It is more than symbolic to house kids at Angola, a former slave plantation, under the same harsh and violent conditions as adults. https://t.co/2HYF5rSyxq https://t.co/5FVdVk2MjT
Our Freedom Ride livestream continues today at 12:30 and 2:30 CDT. For more info visit: https://t.co/z1svjMyQHy. We will see you on FB live at https://t.co/JLaeOLL7tQ! #NoMorePrisons #blackaugust2022

WE ARE ASKING OUR SUPPORTERS TO INVEST IN FFLIC'S CONTINUED WORK TO:

Stop the school to prison pipeline to help children stay in school and reduce the possibility of incarceration, and provide training to parents and schools on positive behavioral intervention supports.
