Congress' Budget Cuts Puts Kids and Community Safety at Risk!
Deep cuts to federal funding that now supports state and local juvenile justice and delinquency prevention efforts will hurt kids, and families, while also jeopardizing public safety. Cuts of this magnitude will result in more children in dangerous, costly lock-ups, greatly increasing risks of suicide, sexual and physical abuse, and disconnection from family, positive support, education and the workforce.
Click here to tell Members of Congress to reject the House cuts and adopt funding levels for Title II, Title V and JABG as close as possible to those included in the President’s budget, and no less than the levels recommended by the Senate.
