California must invest in community organizations supporting youth, not inflated probation budgets.

April 2022, California lost William Bud Brown, a dear friend and source of inspiration for many, including the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice. We honor Bud’s life and his legacy.

In early January, Governor Gavin Newsom released his proposed budget for the 2022 – 23 Fiscal Year. It included a staggering $200 million for the soon-to-close Division of Juvenile Justice. 

California is failing to keep youth safe amid a catastrophic COVID-19 outbreak at DJJ. Join us in standing up for youth by participating in a statewide action.
