The police know it. The prosecutors know it. The courts know it. Anybody who reads the court records and police reports knows it.
This could have been any one of us, or any one of our children who was falsely arrested, railroaded, and imprisioned. If we let this stand, who will be next?
Demand that the prosecutors stop covering up their frame-up of this innocent child and come clean. Demand that Davontae be freed to come home

New Campaign Seeks to Sharply Reduce Youth Incarceration

New Campaign Seeks to Sharply Reduce Youth Incarceration | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON — A national juvenile justice campaign launched today with the ambitious goals of halving youth incarceration in 15 states over the next five years while expanding community-based alternatives for offenders.

The Youth First! Initiative — founded by longtime juvenile justice advocate Liz Ryan — will also seek to reduce rampant racial and ethnic disparities in juvenile incarceration.

“The vast majority of these kids are in for things like misdemeanors, status offenses [such as cutting school or alcohol possession], property offenses, drug offenses, even probation and parole violations,” Ryan said. “To me, it just underscores that at a minimum, we could experience another 50 percent drop in youth incarceration.”

Cynthia -

Cynthia is going to school. She has a job. But what Cynthia doesn't have, is a home. At only 19 years-old, Cynthia has been couch surfing for the last three years. 

Her mom and dad just got up and left, which is sadly very common. I have heard several stories of parents leaving without telling their children. Cynthia shares about the stress of never knowing when a family member will say it's time to leave. She says it's happened to her in the middle of the night. 

Cynthia is also a very brave young woman. Today she spoke at a meeting for congressional staffers about the need to support the Homeless Children Youth Act.
