The ACLU applauds the fantastic work the Campaign has done to bring together advocates, families, and stakeholders to end the unacceptable practice of sentencing children to life behind bars.

Our affiliates across the country benefit from the focused and strategic leadership and support the Campaign provides in state-level efforts to reform draconian juvenile sentencing laws.  The Campaign’s work has even influenced much-needed reform beyond ending JLWOP.

The ACLU is proud to stand with the Campaign.
