Just in — Governor Jerry Brown called for the closure of California’s youth prisons! As part of Brown’s 2012-2013 budget, the Division of Juvenile Justice would stop taking youth beginning in 2013. He proposed this last year as well, but then caved to pressure and backed down. We simply can no longer waste money on an expensive, failed youth prison system at the expense of schools, hospitals, and libraries. This year we need to make sure it closes. Join me in sending a message to the Governor and other leaders urging them to finally shut it down. To take action on this issue, click on the link below: Help close California’s youth prisons!
