About the Campaign

Raise the Age NY is a campaign that successfully advocated for raising the age of criminal responsibility and that continues to advocate for the appropriate implementation of raise the age. As co-lead of the Raise the Age – New York campaign, CDF-NY has fought tirelessly in support of raising the age of criminal responsibility in New York. We will continue to advocate for full implementation of the law and for young people who will continue to be subject to the adult justice system.  A summary of the legislation can be found here
