Rethink the youth jail

10/04/2011

The Just Kids Partnership is participating in the following event:

Recharge Schools! Rethink the Youth Jail!
 
Join over 30 organizations to march for youth opportunities, not jails
 
Tuesday, October 4th 5:00 pm
 
Starting from
 
Baltimore City Detention Center (BCDC)
401 E. Eager Street
Baltimore, MD
 
Join our alliance that has a plan to keep Baltimore safe and help our youth succeed:
 
•Stop the jail
•Reallocate the funds to build the facilities Baltimore youth deserve
Baltimore youth deserve:
 
•Quality education in state-of-the-art buildings 
•Access to vocational centers and employment
•Community rec centers
•Safe and decent homes
Why is the state:
 
•Building a $100 million jail that's not needed?
•Spending $500,000 per bed on an unnecessary jail to house youth charged as adults when they can responsibly house these youth in existing facilities?
 
 
A new youth jail will not make the community safer and it will not help our youth.
