The Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth is a national coalition and clearinghouse that coordinates, develops and supports efforts to implement fair and age appropriate sentences for youth. We provide communications and public education resources, technical assistance on strategic litigation and legislative advocacy at the state and federal levels. We also work to build coalitions at the national level and act as a convener for people working on these issues. For more information about this work, please contact us at

As a national organization, we prioritize our role as a convener. Because advocates, litigators, family members of incarcerated youth and family members of victims often do not have relationships with each other, we bring representatives from these diverse groups together to discuss legislative, community organizing and public education strategies. We coordinate calls and gatherings among people working on these issues and also bring partners together each year for a multi-day gathering, during which we discuss the status of our shared movement and chart plans for the future.
