Youth & Family Justice
Educating and mobilizing parents and caregivers across the nation around healthy kids and communities. Our work focuses on healthy schools and public spaces, marketing to kids, healthy drinks, dismantling the school to prison pipeline; amplifying resilience and decreasing trauma with social-emotional development practices in grades K-12.
Our approach to public safety is not working for children, for families, and particularly for Black and brown communities that have been devastated by mental health and substance use health crises, and criminalization. Pass the People’s Response Act Now!
The stories from families like you who have been impacted by universal school meals can move lawmakers and change policies.
Single moms accused of stealing baby formula or diapers. Teenagers using their student MetroCards off-hours. Out-of-work New Yorkers jumping the turnstile to get to a job interview. Gov. Hochul’s 10 point plan would put them all in jail. Tell your lawmakers NO!
