Raise the Age

Raise the Age-New York is a campaign designed to increase public awareness around New York’s pressing need to implement a comprehensive approach to raise the age of criminal responsibility so the legal process responds to all children as children, and services and placement options better meet the rehabilitative needs of all children and youth. The Raise the Age-New York campaign is comprised of national and local advocates, youth, parents, law enforcement and legal representation groups, faith leaders and unions, dedicated to building awareness of the need for improvements within New York's juvenile justice system.
