African-American Youth in The Juvenile Justice System

African-American Youth in The Juvenile Justice System

6. 1 We

6. 1 We disseminate Quarterly publications, like our e-Advocate series Newsletter and our e-Advocate Quarterly electronic Magazine to all regular donors in order to facilitate a lifelong learning process on the ever-evolving developments in the Justice system. And in addition to the help we provide for our young clients and their families, we also facilitate Community Engagement through the Restorative Justice process, thereby balancing the interesrs of local businesses, schools, clergy, elected officials, police, and all interested stakeholders. Through these efforts, relationships are rebuilt & strengthened, local businesses and communities are enhanced & protected from victimization, young careers are developed, and our precious young people are kept out of the prison pipeline. This is a massive undertaking, and we need all the help and financial support you can give! We plan to help 75 young persons per quarter-year (aggregating to a total of 250 per year) in each jurisdiction we serve) at an average cost of under $2,500 per client, per year.* Thank you in advance for your support! * FYI: 1. The national average cost to taxpayers for minimum-security youth incarceration, is around $43,000.00 per child, per year. 2. The average annual cost to taxpayers for maximun-security youth incarceration is well over $148,000.00 per child, per year. - (US News and World Report, December 9, 2014); 3. In every jurisdiction in the nation, the Plea Bargain rate is above 99%. The Judicial system engages in a tri-partite balancing task in every single one of these matters, seeking to balance Rehabilitative Justice with Community Protection and Judicial Economy, and, although the practitioners work very hard to achieve positive outcomes, the scales are nowhere near balanced where people of color are involved. We must reverse this trend, which is right now working very much against the best interests of our young. Our young people do not belong behind bars. - Jack Johnson 1 In addition to supporting our world-class programming and support services, all regular donors receive our Quarterly e-Newsletter (The e-Advocate), as well as The e-Advocate Quarterly Magazine.
