Vote Yes on Prop 57: Education Not Incarceration

On November 8th, California voters have the opportunity to potentially reverse and redress the damage caused by Proposition 21, which locked up thousands of juveniles of color in adult facilities and helped create the world's largest juvenile justice system. Proposition 57 was co-authored by the Youth Justice Coalition, Los Angeles county's frontline organizer for incarcerated youth.

White juvenile offenders consistently receive second, third and fourth chances, while black and Latino youth get more policing, incarceration and little chance at re-entry to jobs, housing and education.
