Ending the Criminalization of Youth: One Investment at a Time

Connecticut Juvenile Justice Alliance


This report develops legislative asks and calls to action for policymakers and community members to reduce the number of youth entering the juvenile justice system. It does that by centering the knowledge and experiences of those most impacted by the justice system into all conversations on juvenile justice policy, practice and reform.

First, this report provides background on the history and work of the Connecticut Juvenile Justice Alliance (CTJJA/the Alliance) and state of juvenile justice in Connecticut. Though progress has been made in reducing the size of the juvenile system and improving conditions for system-involved youth, there is still much more work to do in both areas.

Second, this report identifies the need for systemic change to ensure continued progress in removing currently incarcerated youth and preventing their initial introduction into the justice system.
