*Thank you for your interest, this event is at capacity.*
Each year, 225,000 Californian youth are arrested and exposed to the state's criminal justice system. These young people are routinely tried and treated as adults, or subjected to room confinement, also known as solitary confinement. This year, we have a chance to reform these damaging practices and increase protections for young people in juvenile prisons. 
Join us for "Confronting the System: A Night of Action for Juvenile Justice", an evening for taking action to end juvenile room confinement and increase protections for juveniles facing sentencing. Learn from experienced advocates working towards criminal justice reform, and take collective action with other progressive Jews to have our voices heard by those who can make this change. 
Bend the Arc: Bay Area has been working in partnership with Ella Baker Center and California organizations to pass important legislation this year that will increase these important protections for young people in our communities. We invite you to be part of the movement to #endyouthisolation.
