The Connecticut Juvenile Justice Alliance (CTJJA) was launched in November 2001 as a collaborative effort of the Center for Children’s Advocacy, Connecticut Voices for Children, RYASAP, and The Tow Foundation.

The mission of the Connecticut Juvenile Justice Alliance is to reduce the number of children and youth entering the juvenile and criminal justice system, and advocate a safe, effective, and fair system for those involved.

The Color of Justice

A documentary by Connecticut Public Broadcasting looks at racial disparity in the juvenile justice system, and explores ways to ensure that every child in the system gets fair and equal treatment. We’re hosting forums for people who want to be part of the solution. We hope you’ll join us.
