Agenda

No Place For a Child

Campaign

Date

Friday 26th of January 2018

Description

Since 2011, over 7,600 children have been prosecuted as adults in Florida.

98% of these kids were transferred to adult court without any input or oversight by a judge.

How do we fix this unfair system? And start treating kids like kids.

-Restore the role of judges to decide whether a child should be prosecuted as an adult.

-Limit the offenses for which a child may be prosecuted as an adult.

-Hold children prosecuted as adults in juvenile facilities only.

Help fix the system and put Florida’s kids back on track.
