Statement of Principles.

Every child in the juvenile justice system deserves justice and respect.

.

Everyone has a chance to develop their leadership.

.

We believe in the restoration of each person while we are fighting for the restoration of our communities.

.

We believe in compassionate community agitators who focus on organizing, growth, development and healing within youth, families and communities.

.

We will center the voices of youth and young adults and their families in decision making processes that directly impact youth in their community.

.

We will empower the voices and stories of youth of the LGBTQ community, youth of color, as well as youth with disabilities.

.

We believe that in order to make a safe and thriving community we must address the root causes of harm and work collectively to make real change.

.

We believe that youth should be invested in to promote the next generation of leaders in Kansas.

.

We believe that the justice system is biased and marginalizes populations based on their race, religion, gender identity and expression, class, ability, addiction, mental health status and sexual orientation and that this needs to change.

.

We believe in the empowerment of youth with their stories and experiences and encourage them not to use their story as a crutch but as a sword, for they are the experts of their own stories and experiences.
