Closing Youth Prisons

Join the Final 5 Team to explore the state of youth incarceration and how they want to transform the juvenile justice system in Illinois! Participants will hear from restorative justice practitioners, programmers, and policymakers, including Felipe Franco — who helped implement the Close to Home model in NYC — and speakers from Liberation Library, who do the radical work of providing books to young people in prison to encourage literacy, imagination, and self-determination.
