To drastically reduce incarceration and improve outcomes for system-involved youth in California
To share opportunities, resources and strategies to transform the juvenile judicial and incarceration systems.
We value concrete action to improve outcomes for youth and families.
We seek to ensure that the work the Alliance takes on and the policies advocated for are informed and developed by the youth and families directly affected by the public systems, including youth arrest, court, detention, incarceration and deportation.
We value leadership among youth and communities of colour and recognize that significant and powerful change is always led by people most impacted by the system.
We value fair geographic representation in the Alliance, and seek to ensure that all organizational and individual voices are heard regardless of language, job titles, educational degree, neighbourhood, race, gender, sexual orientation and/or the amount of resources brought to the table.
