CJNY: Stopping the Rail to Jail

The Community Justice Network for Youth (CJNY) is a program of the W. Haywood Burns Institute (BI). This publication outlines the foundation and beliefs that ground CJNY’s work. As a support network, the CJNY enhances the capacity of community organizations who collectively share one vision: To promote the availability of effective and culturally-appropriate programming for youth of color and poor communities. The CJNY helps to develop real solutions to replace the “cradle to prison pipeline” created by zero-tolerance policies in schools, a lack of opportunities in poor communities and the failure of public systems.
