The Transformative Justice Committee aims to build cooperative and compassionate relationships with the community to eliminate youth incarceration. We acknowledge that the current systems in place do not serve all of us and we hope to shift the conversations and dynamics to how people can live and thrive. It is part of our Youth Commission values that we can and should center humanity in the City’s budget and policy priorities.
