OP-ed by Katarina Sayally (MSW '19): "It’s On All of Us: Close Youth Prisons, Build Youth Leaders"

June 22, 2021

"I am a Dream Beyond Bars fellow at Communities United for Restorative Youth Justice. As formerly incarcerated youth and leaders in our community, we are committed to ensuring that the state closes DJJ the right way. To me, this means that youth never belong in cages, period... Young people are worthy of dignity, care and a second chance — none of which are present in the current system."

Alum Katarina Sayally (MSW '19) shares her thoughts on the reform of the juvenile justice system in California.
