In just five years, you have helped us establish a diverse and growing movement that is scaling back life without parole for youth across the country.

Some people told as children that they would die in prison are now free, and others have hope that they will get the second chances they deserve. We have passed model legislation with bipartisan support in a number of states, which means young people in those states won’t get this sentence in the future.

The cost of success is ever rising. We now have staff in California, Illinois, and DC working for fair sentencing, in addition to launching the first-ever national network of formerly incarcerated youth, expanding our annual Convening to include even more strategic partners, and leading the development of guidelines for proper legal representation of youth facing extreme sentences.

Any donation you can make—whether it’s $5 or $5,000—powers our ability to serve as the leader of this movement. We are the only nonprofit focused exclusively on abolishing these extreme sentences for young people. Thanks to you, we are winning!

Please donate so we can win once and for all.
