Healthy Communities Secure Care Legislation Endorsement
Virginia must provide all young people with the opportunities they deserve to learn and grow from their mistakes. The Healthy Communities Secure Care Legislation will ensure that Virginia is following the best documented practices for youth justice, and departing from a racist and destructive status quo. This legislation ensures that young people who need secure care receive it in small facilities of 30 beds or less and located in the communities the youth are from. Further, this legislation helps us move in the direction of creating deep sustainable public safety that combines investment in young people with investment in the communities where they live.

Our organization or office urges the General Assembly to pass the Healthy Communities Secure Care Legislation in 2020. We give RISE for Youth permission to include the name of our organization/office and organizational logo on a list of supporters. Furthermore, I certify that I have the authority to sign this statement of support.
