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.
