Help end the ongoing human rights violations against youth in the USA by calling on Congress and state legislators across the country to end life without parole sentences for juveniles.

are many people who have no idea that the United States sentences youth to life
without parole--or that we are the only country that imposes this extreme
sentence on youth. The CFSY has produced a new video to
raise awareness about this unjust practice.
Help build the movement by
sharing this with your friends, family and colleagues, because youth should
never be sentenced to die in prison. Together, I know we can end the practice
of sentencing youth to life without parole.
The Injustice Must End (TIME) Committee to Free Efrén Paredes, Jr. maintains this blog. We are citizens of conscience concerned with educating the public about the inhumane imposition of life without parole sentences (LWOP) on juveniles and Efrén's wrongful conviction. Efrén was arrested at age 15 and sentenced to LWOP for a crime he did not commit. You can learn more about juvenile LWOP sentences by visiting http://Abolish-JLWOP.blogspot.com.
