Help us remember the 900+ young people that are automatically charged as adults each year.

During the holiday season, youth who are automatically charged as adults are isolated from their families, friends and communities. This December, the Just Kids Campaign asks you to remember one of those youth by hanging up a FREE ornament in your home, workplace, car or anywhere! The ornaments were made by youth who were formerly detained over the holidays and depict what they missed while they were gone.

How to participate:

  1. Send your full name and address to justkidsmd@gmail.com to receive one or more ornaments in the mail. They are free!

  2. Hang up your ornament, take a photo and share it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #JustKidsMD.

Share the real life stories of youth automatically charged as adults with your friends and family. They can be found on the Campaign’s Website!
