Dear Just Kids Supporter,
Do you know what today is? It’s the first day of the Maryland General Assembly! This session Just Kids is working on legislation that will ensure that ALL youth charged as adults are held safely and securely in juvenile detention centers and not adult jails. But, we can’t do this alone – we need YOU.
Over the next three weeks we are releasing three infographics to explain the problem, solution and how the system will change so you can help us fight in Annapolis!
Want to stand with Just Kids? Here are three ways you can help us to ensure that youth in Maryland are held in juvenile detention centers:
1. Join our “Act Now” listserv. This listserv will provide you will weekly updates on the legislative processes, alert you of when it’s time to act, and provide you with talking points to share with your colleagues and family.
2. Forward this email to three friends and ask them to stand with us this session by joining our “Act Now” listserv.
3. Share this message on Facebook and Twitter and ask your friends and followers to stand with you: “During this legislative session I am standing with Just Kids so that no youth are held in adult jails pretrial. Stand with us by joining the “Act Now” listserv to keep up to date with the campaign.” (And include a link to our infographics!)
Together we can make this change!
Thank you for your continued support,
The Just Kids Team
