Stang-up Meeting

We Foster Common Vision

Creating Powerful Results

Investing in coalition and community-building around public policy issues that advance youth justice.

We have brought coalitions together working for youth justice.

The Children’s Policy and Law Initiative of Indiana collaborates with community partners to provide expert knowledge, conduct research, arrange workshops and conferences, and promote community-led efforts to improve policies, practices, and programs for children. We strive to connect public policy reform with policy development, education, collaboration, alliance building, advocacy, and evaluation to address critical concerns affecting children. The organization serves as a statewide resource for reforming laws related to children and works to reduce the number of children entering the juvenile and criminal justice systems.
