URGENT ACTION: Call 1-202-224-3121 now to urge your members of Congress to support the reauthorization of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA). Since its last authorization in 2007, the act has been revised to strengthen protections for youth with the goal of keeping them out of the juvenile justice system.

The Children's Defense Fund is coordinating this effort and suggests the following message:

To your Senators:

Hello, I am a constituent from (hometown) and I’m calling today to urge Senator ____________ to co-sponsor the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Reauthorization Act (S. 1169), the bipartisan bill introduced by Senators Grassley and Whitehouse. I stand proudly with the hundreds of young leaders on Capitol Hill to help end the Cradle to Prison Pipeline® crisis. New improvements to the juvenile justice act will help keep thousands of young people out of the prison pipeline and on track to a successful adulthood.

To your Representative:

Hello, I am a constituent from (hometown) and I’m calling today to urge Congressman/woman __________ to co-sponsor Representative Bobby Scott’s bill H.R. 2728 to reauthorize, this year, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act. I stand proudly with the hundreds of young leaders on Capitol Hill to help end the Cradle to Prison Pipeline® crisis. New improvements to the juvenile justice act will help keep thousands of young people out of the prison pipeline and on track to a successful adulthood.
