Fists in Solidarity


Stang-up Meeting


Coalition building involves individuals and groups to actively collaborate in a spirit of mutual understanding, patience, and flexibility toward a common end. CPLI invests in coalition and community-building around issues that advance youth justice.

Support. Engage. Achieve.

The Children’s Policy and Law Initiative (CPLI) 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. 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.
