Default The ¥outh Prison Reduction Act [aka Youth Promise] - Another Bill to Support!!!

Another Bill from Robert Scott with broader application for juveniles...the information below if from his press release. A summary of the Bill is also attached to this post. You can also find more information about the Bill and the enormous endorsement response from Cities, agencies and organizations by going to http://www.bobbyscott.house.gov/inde...=291&Itemid=86

H.R. 1064 / S. 435
The Youth Prison Reduction through Opportunities, Mentoring, Intervention, Support, and Education (Youth PROMISE) Act

This Youth PROMISE Act implements the advice we heard over the last year from over 50 crime policy makers, researchers, practitioners analysts, and law enforcement officials from across the political spectrum concerning evidence- and research-based strategies to reduce gang violence and crime. Under the Youth PROMISE Act, communities facing the greatest youth gang and crime challenges will form a local council. This council will include representatives from law enforcement, court services, schools, social service, health and mental health providers, and community-based organizations, including faith-based organizations. The council will develop a comprehensive plan for implementing evidence-based prevention and intervention strategies. These strategies will be targeted at young people who are at-risk of becoming involved, or involved in, gangs or the criminal justice system to redirect them toward productive and law-abiding alternatives.

...if i know anything at all,
it's that a wall is just a wall
and nothing more at all,
it can be broken down.
