Children's Campaign

Please consider contacting your legislator about the issues detailed in the following SOS from the Children's Campaign, particularly the funding for Guardians Ad Litem (GAL) program and the Juvenile Assessment Centers:


Officials with whom I've spoken agree that our juvenile justice system is "a joke." Even though CourtWatch does not monitor the juvenile courts, we often see youthful offenders pleading guilty to armed robbery, assaults, and other crimes in felony court. Please tell your legislator that the courts need to be adequately funded to hold all perpetrators, juvenile and adult, accountable for their crimes.
