The Youth PROMISE Act (Prison Reduction through Opportunities, Mentoring, Intervention, Support, and Education) is groundbreaking, bipartisan legislation currently before the U.S. House and Senate that will make unprecedented investments in proven strategies to prevent youth violence. While this is a national referendum, this bill has the potential to dramatically affect violence in our own neighborhoods of LA where we face an epidemic of violence among our youth. Across our nation, the challenges reach from inner city gangs to suburban bullies, and spill into our streets, schools, homes and culture.
There is hope. The Youth PROMISE Act will save lives, reduce crime and save money by empowering local communities to shape and oversee evidence-based strategies that engage and divert at-risk youth proactively, before they slip through the cracks of the criminal justice system. This is the first act of its kind to focus exclusively on prevention. Learn more at www.youthpromiseaction.org.
The Youth PROMISE Act already has tremendous momentum, with the support of a majority of the Member of the U.S. House of Representatives and is gaining steam in the U.S. Senate. Help us give Congress an extra push to pass this transformative legislation. We have a real opportunity to help end the cycle of hopelessness and despair that is the daily reality for far too many of our youth. Join us!
