Juvenile Lifers -Educational tool for at risk youth

Juvenile Lifers for Justice is a collective of prisoners who were arrested as juveniles(under 18 years old) for criminal homicide and are currently serving life sentences without parole in Pennsylvania.
There are over 33o juvenile lifers both male and female in Pennsylvania serving life sentences without parole. Some children were as young as fourteen when they were arrested and some have been incarcerated for more than 30 years.
Many of us have transformed our lives since our imprisonment by continuing our education, completing treatment programs, and renouncing negative behaviors that led to our imprisonment.

This informative booklet is intended to serve as an educational tool for at-risk youth.

This is the first in a series of work from the How to Play the "Game" booklet. More drawings, stories, and "avoiding the trap" insight from this booklet coming soon.
