We have been busy at YSRP, and wanted to share a quick update about our programs that have kicked off over the past few months, and our core work that has continued to evolve.
The need for YSRP's work has never been greater. Of the 300 "juvenile lifers" sentenced in Philadelphia who now have the right to be resentenced according to the U.S. Supreme Court, only 2 have received new sentences thus far. YSRP is actively engaged in the resentencing, parole and/or reentry processes for 27 juvenile lifers, and there are so many more individuals who have sought out our assistance, that we have had to turn away because of limits on our capacity.
Now, more than ever, we need your support. Please consider making a donation through our website here, or by sending a check to:
Youth Sentencing & Reentry Project
123 South Broad Street
Philadelphia, PA 19109
All our best,
