CJCJ in the news: Like Our Vets, Justice-Involved Youth Are Survivors of War

Juvenile Justice Information Exchange (JJIE) published an op-ed by CJCJ's Sentencing Service Program Manager Nisha Ajmani calling for trauma-informed care to youth in the juvenile justice system.

"Rather than locking kids up and throwing away the key, the juvenile court should adopt an approach similar to veterans courts in its handling of all young people who walk through the door, as, chances are that each one of them has been through war, even if it was not fought in Iraq, Afghanistan or Vietnam."
