This issue of the Fire Inside is dedicated to all the young women caught up in the juvenile (in)justice system.
You have far fewer legal rights than adults, as well as less access to the help and support that you need. As one young woman said, “They say we are the future, but they treat us like the past.”
You are our future, and we vow to fight for you today so that you will be able to fight for yourselves and the world tomorrow.
We dedicate this issue in honor of your energy and your courage.
