Youth Represent’s mission is to ensure that young people affected by the criminal justice system are afforded every opportunity to reclaim lives of dignity, self-fulfillment, and engagement in their communities.  A conviction, an arrest, or even a simple interaction with police can have lasting consequences for young people, threatening the stability they need to thrive. When the legal system creates barriers to success for youth, we use the law and zealous advocacy to help them leave the stigma of a criminal record behind.
