WCA Participates in Raise the Age Rally

On January 30, 2015, WCA Deputy Director Allison Lake joined Senator David Carlucci, Families Together in New York State, and community activists outside of Sing Sing Prison to call for New York to raise the age of adult criminal responsibility for 16- and 17- year olds.

The rally encouraged the adoption of the recommendations presented by the Commission on Youth, Public Safety and Justice, as well as the provision of funding for the rehabilitative, therapeutic and educational services that will help youth turn their lives around and make our communities safer.
