This past week, Governor Bill Haslam filed major legislation aimed at a number of youth justice issues including inconsistent policies across Tennessee juvenile courts, and placing limits on the types of offenses for which youth can be detained.

Please join us Monday, February 5th at 6pm at our 2018 Youth Legislation Informational and Training for a breakdown of the proposed Juvenile Justice Reform Act of 2018, as well as information on a number of other legislative measures, under consideration by the Tennessee legislature.  We will also provide a brief training on effectively contacting legislators.
