California Youth Bill of Rights

Status: Open

Outcome: Active

Location: California

Currently, California’s Youth Bill of Rights only covers youth detained in some juvenile justice facilities. NCLR is co-sponsoring AB 2417, which would expand these rights to all youth in any juvenile justice facility, as well as expand protections for educational rights and protection against discrimination based on gender expression and immigration status.
