LEAP was awarded the 34th Annual Good Government Award for managerial
excellence by San Francisco Planning and Urban Research (SPUR)

(Jennifer Paschal Bruce Forrester Photography, 2014)

Through LEAP, the San Francisco Public Defender's Office and CJCJ
work collaboratively to improve educational outcomes for
justice-involved youth. The LEAP program is now in its second year

through the program, only 13% have reoffended.

CJCJ testifies at the legislature's justice reinvestment hearing

Assembly Select Committee on Justice Reinvestment acknowledges
critical need for data-driven decision making

On March 18, 2014, California's Assembly Select Committee on Justice
Reinvestment heard testimony from juvenile justice experts on what
the state could do to improve public safety outcomes for youth.

CJCJ's Brian Goldstein testified on the importance of strengthening
data collection systems, elevating innovative community-based models
of care, and integrating best practice requirements into state
funding allocations. The concluding panel raised up the voices of
youth who had been impacted by the system. Learn more >> -

Overall, the hearing demonstrates that the legislature has not
forgotten about juvenile justice reform. As the legislative session
moves forward, policymakers and advocates must continue to highlight
issues of data collection and accountability to ensure California
keeps moving towards a 21st century juvenile justice system.
