Discovering Justice Events

Social media is one of the most influential factors in the lives of young people. 92% of teens go online daily, and on average, have 8 social media accounts. As part of of Discovering Justice’s After-School Mock Appeal Program, all middle and high school students were invited to attend a free virtual training led by Citizens for Juvenile Justice titled “Know Your Rights: Social Media and the Law” on May 18th at 4 pm via Zoom. 

Founded in 1994, Citizens for Juvenile Justice is the only independent, non-profit, statewide organization working to improve the juvenile justice system in Massachusetts. This organization’s mission is to advocate for statewide systemic reform that achieves equitable youth justice.
