Youth Bill of Rights (2022)

AB 2417 (Ting)
Location
California

California's 2022 Youth Bill of Rights legislation would ensure that youth who are incarcerated know their rights and are informed of the newly-established state ombudsperson office. With the closure of California's state-run prisons, there is an urgent need to reassert these rights for youth and ensure youth understand their rights.
